By law they are not allowed to intimidate or coerce their members. If they do they can be sued under the Civil Rights Act and held personally responsible for large judgments. That is why PJI, with over 1,000 opt-out letters processed over 20 years, has only had to go to court once. ChooseCharity will actively monitor and defend members that opt-out at no cost to the member. ChooseCharity will also act as your attorney through this process, so that all correspondence and communications will go through ChooseCharity, therefore relieving the member from potential union pressure and allowing him/her to defer all discussions with union representatives to ChooseCharity.
