Letter: Strange use of union dues?

We all need inspiration, but sometimes it’s hard to come by. Such must be the situation for AFSCME, the union representing Minnesota’s state, county, and municipal employees.

In Council 5’s June newsletter, “Action Update,” is an invitation to attend Labor Movie Night. This month’s showing? “Live Nude Girls Unite!”, a documentary about San Francisco peep-show strippers trying to unionize for better working conditions.

As a union member, I strongly protest union dues being used to undergird the sex trade, and I find it alarming that our union “leaders” think they have to look in this direction for “inspiration.”
