Attorneys ensure a smooth and quick processing of the the Opt-Out process, thereby getting the dues to your charity more quickly. In addition, if a union were to challenge your right to opt out, ChooseCharity would want to make sure that your request meets the tests that the courts have established, so that it can be defended properly.
ChooseCharity will act as an administrative entity that will assist in the opt-out process, collection and distribution of MEMBER dues to a charity of the member’s choice, and MEMBER communications, similar to United Way or Cars for Causes.
ChooseCharity was launched by Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) Attorneys who have already assisted over 1000 MEMBERS and is expert in the process. ChooseCharity will continue to rely on PJI to provide litigation services for our members. PJI is a non-profit legal defense organization specializing in the defense of religious freedom.
As we have stated, the process is difficult and requires legal skills and a non-profit has the charity connections.
Unfortunately the law was set up without a simple way to opt out. The unions have developed a system that is somewhat onerous. ChooseCharity has simplified this process.
