Well, it looks like the Freedom Foundation is at it again. Many of you may have recently received notice from your employer that your union status and the day of the month you were born, were being released through a public records act request. It has happened before and will happen again. Just know this, when those requests come through, that is all they can get. They don't get your full date of birth. Not the month, and not the year. That information is protected. How?
Because the WPEA has your back on this! The amazing activist members of the WPEA worked with our law firm and our legislative staff to make WPEA a primary player in the legal action and subsequent legislation that ensured that your full date of birth wasn't subject to public records disclosure to agencies, like the Freedom Foundation. We've had your back on this for years.
The Freedom Foundation, and other union-busting agencies like them, will keep doing this same thing. However, that is all they are ever going to get. They can keep asking this same tired question, and they will get the same answer, but they aren't getting your personal information! No email, no physical address, no phone, and NO full date of birth.
Although the information given out is so limited, many of us want to see change and protect ALL of a member's information. If you want to see the change happen, email Seamus@wpea.org to participate and help create even more protection for the members of the WPEA.
