Title: SEIU Union and Armed Forces Contractor Face Federal Prosecution
Hello and welcome to this week’s Right to Work news update.
At Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, an SEIU government union and a Kansas-based food services company are facing a federal prosecution for violating food service workers’ rights.
With free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys, two workers filed federal charges leading to the prosecutions.
Kimsha Rosensteel a former president of a local SEIU National Association of Government Employees union and an 11-year employee with food services provider EDP Enterprises, Inc., who while serving as union president discovered that the union continually failed to follow federal disclosure requirements designed to better inform workers about their rights to refrain from full-dues-paying union membership.
Rather than address the routine disclosure failures, the SEIU-NAGE union hierarchy removed Rosensteel from her position as president. In addition, union officials attempted to pressure Rosensteel into accepting an exclusive deal that allowed only her to refrain from paying union dues and fees if she remained quiet about the union’s illegal activities.
When several other EDP Enterprises employees requested that they be able to refrain from paying all union dues or fees, EDP management demanded that the union resume taking full union dues from Rosensteel’s paychecks.
EDP Enterprises employee Stephanie Fenton filed federal charges after SEIU-NAGE union officials refused to follow the federal disclosure requirements and stonewalled employees’ requests to refrain from full dues-paying union membership.
The NLRB has scheduled a hearing on the case for January 12, 2015.
We will keep you posted on National Right to Work Foundation attorneys’ continuing efforts to assist workers who want to refrain from bankrolling union bosses’ radical political agenda.

As part of their Documented Rights Exhibit, the National Archives at St. Louis hosted a distinguished panel of scholars and legal experts to discuss the historical significance of documents from the Hernandez v. Corpus Christi, Texas (1959) case. A sampling of these case documents are featured in the Documented Rights exhibition. This case involves discrimination against children with Spanish surnames who were required to attend Spanish language speaking public schools, even though they could not speak Spanish.
The panel was moderated by attorney and immigration law professor Dr. Richard T. Middleton at the University of Missouri at St. Louis. Legal experts John Ammann (St. Louis University Civil Advocacy Clinic), Kenneth K. Schmitt (U.S. Legal Solutions, LLC & Missouri Kansas Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association), and Kristine Walentik (Catholic Immigration Law Project) were among the evenings speakers.
The panelists examined how the Hernandez case impacts current immigration law in Missouri and other parts of the United States. Attorneys Ammann and Schmitt also discussed recent legislation surrounding Missouri’s current debate over the implementation of an English-only drivers exam. Meanwhile, Kristine Walentik shared information on free legal aid available to immigrants who qualify.

Three Missouri Bar Young Lawyers’ Section Pro Bono Awards are presented annually: one for members of The Missouri Bar in practice less than five years; one for members in practice more than five years; and a third for an organization or firm that actively encourages its employees and/or members — particularly its young or newly-admitted lawyers — to provide pro bono services. Awardees are selected from those who have excelled in one or more of the following ways: demonstrated dedication to the development and delivery of legal services to the poor through a pro bono program; contributed significant work toward developing innovative approaches to delivery of volunteer legal services; participated in an activity that resulted in satisfying previously unmet needs or in extending services to underserved segments of the population; successfully litigated pro bono cases that favorably affected the provision of other services to the poor; and successfully achieved legislation that contributed substantially to legal services to the poor.

The 2nd Annual Community Development Workshop was help on January 30th, 2014 at the Kauffman Conference Center. The Community Capital Fund’s Annual Community Development Workshop brought together neighborhood associations, nonprofits, public agencies, residents, and other stakeholders that live and work in historically under-invested and under-resourced communities in Kansas City, Missouri. Workshop participants had the opportunity to network with people doing similar work, share insights on how to best address issues and opportunities in the area, and connect to critical resources.
This session will provide information on what neighborhoods can and should do to deal with vacant and poorly maintained homes and lots. Often, abandoned homes and vacant lots are viewed as an eyesore, but what can residents and neighborhoods do to turn these eyesores into assets, and maybe even landmarks? The panelists will discuss the intrinsic value of these properties; ways in which neighborhoods can – and have – worked with the panelists to identify the best use of a property; and how they are transforming abandoned and/or poorly maintained houses into occupied, well-maintained homes. The panelists will also discuss other ways in which residents and organizations can be proactive in dealing with underutilized properties, including marketing a neighborhood to attract new buyers and rehabbers.

Every Parent Should Watch This Video; Especially Fathers!
Episode 7 of the Custodial Support Forum provides insight into what many would say is a flaw in the Child Support Enforcement system within America, when a Noncustodial Parent loses their job and is unable to pay their child support.
If You Need Help; Call: (855) 851-HELP or (855) 851-4357
In Part 1 of Episode 7, a Noncustodial Parent discloses how the court denied the opportunity to reduce his child support obligation after losing his job. The continued obligation led to an accumulation of arrears, which triggered an arrest warrant, and child support judgment on his credit report. Never having a prior criminal record, he never received notice of the arrest warrant, and he was arrested. After spending several months in the Bergen County Jail, he contacted the Custodial Support Foundation, and was provided with an attorney, who was able to convince the Judge to release him and reduce his child support obligation.
In Part 2 of Episode 7, Attorney Alexandra Stremler discusses how important it is for Noncustodial Parents to retain the services of an attorney to assist in their child support related problems. She raises the issues that many judges feel if a Noncustodial Parent can afford an expensive attorney, they can afford to pay their child support arrears. She explains how the Custodial Support Foundation Amnesty Program’s cost effective legal fees, enables an attorney to represent a Noncustodial Parent can’t afford to pay their arrears, when applying for a downward child support obligation.
The Custodial Support Foundation provides an Amnesty Program for noncustodial parents that owe child support arrears, have arrest warrant for unpaid arrears, revoked driver’s licenses, revoked passports and income tax levies.
The program provides legal and collection services to enable noncustodial parents to establish settlement agreements to pay their arrears, suspend their arrest warrants, restore their licenses, restore their passports and stop income tax levies for the nonpayment of child support.
1. Noncustodial parents agree to an easy payment plan to repay all arrears, enter into a repayment agreement and completes a certification that is provided to the court to:
● Vacate Child Support Warrants
● Reinstate Licenses
● Reinstate Passports
● Stop Income Tax Withholdings
2. Agreements are established between the Office of Child Support Enforcement and a certification is prepared for the court to accept the motion of repayment.
3. Noncustodial parents provide all of the necessary information to enable the Office of Child Support Enforcement to garnish all future child support payment to prevent the accumulation of additional arrears.
4. Noncustodial parents make court appearances with a pre-accepted Motion for the repayment with the first payment to have the court grant the order to vacate child support arrest warrants, reinstate licenses, reinstate passports and stop income tax withholdings.
5. Noncustodial parents can live a fulfilled life that enables the privileges of the American Dream, without the fear and the threat of being arrested.
Noncustodial parents who need help with obtaining a downward modification of the child support order or structuring programs to repay their arrears should call the Custodial Support Foundation’s Call Center at (855) 851-HELP or (855) 851-4357.
