Unions are for the union not the members. They are incredibly undemocratic

Southwest flight attendant wins $5.1 million after she was fired for complaining that union supported abortion and funded anti-Trump Women's March

  • A jury in federal district court in Dallas handed down the verdict Thursday. If it stands, Charlene Carter could collect $4.15 million from Southwest Airlines
  • Carter could also receive $950,000 from Local 556 of the Transport Workers Union, mostly in punitive damages 
  • Southwest said Friday it 'has a demonstrated history of supporting our employees´ rights to express their opinions' and plans to appeal 
  • Carter alleged she was fired in March 2017 after complaining to the union president about flight attendants going to the Women's March in Washington 
  • The longtime flight attendant, who had clashed with the union for years, believed dues were paying for an anti-abortion protest
