FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 27, 2009
Saul Anuzis Joins American Solutions' Campaign to Promote 'Freedom Not Fear' in the Workplace
Anuzis will lead a grassroots campaign to save American jobs and protect the secret ballot
WASHINGTON, DC—Saul Anuzis, former Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, joined the American Solutions team today as National Chairman of its "Save American Jobs Project."
"We are thrilled to have Saul join the American Solutions team and lead this important project," said Newt Gingrich, American Solutions' General Chairman. "Saul is an extraordinary leader with the new media savvy and grassroots connections to successfully chair this nationwide campaign."
The "Save American Jobs Project" is a grassroots, Internet-based campaign to mobilize citizens to defeat the so-called Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) and protect workers' right to a secret ballot union election and their right to freely negotiate their contracts. If EFCA became law, workers would be asked to publically sign cards in front of union organizers, potentially subjecting them to harassment or intimidation.
"We need freedom not fear in the workplace to be competitive in the global economy," said Gingrich. "With business owners struggling to keep their doors open, the last thing they need is more costly bureaucratic red tape and federally imposed work rules. Forcing workers to join a union will kill jobs in America at a time we can't afford to lose them."
In discussing his new role, Saul Anuzis said, "I am excited to join with Newt and American Solutions in this crucial fight to save American jobs and protect worker's rights. We look forward to working with our coalition partners to defeat this anti-democratic bill that is wrong for our economy and our country." Anuzis, a former Teamster, went on to say, "I believe that workers have the right to organize, but they must be permitted to vote in private and freely negotiate their contracts."
