KBOO Community Radio: Dump Anti-Union Advertiser Bullard Law

    1. Petition by

      Keep KBOO KBOO

Because it is not only unnecessarily costly, but also, as a firm dedicated to the interests of employers seeking "union avoidance" and a "union-free workplace", Bullard Law is antithetical to the values of KBOO. Just as KBOO has "stringent guidelines regarding from whom it will accept donations", so, too, we think the station should not spend money on an organization whose values are contrary to KBOO's "progressive perspective" and dedication to inclusivity, empowerment, justice, and democracy.

      PROBABLY EVERY NON-PROFIT AT SOME TIME OR ANOTHER NEEDS AN ATTORNEY. EACH ORGANIZATION NEEDS TO CHOOSE ONE THAT IS COMPETENT, HAS REASONABLE FEES, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HAS A PHILOSOPHY THAT IS IN LINE WITH THE NON-PROFIT EMPLOYING IT.

      I support the staff's right to unionize. I am a former employee of KBOO and find it interesting to note that Ani Haines was the strong-arm person AGAINST our attempt to unionize roughly 5 years ago. Now Ani Haines wants to unionize the ...

      Choosing a law firm with a strong anti-union track record is a bad match for KBOO and sends an adversarial message to its staff union.

      I contribute my $$ to KBOO to support free speech; not any organization, like Bullard Law, whose values do not align with KBOO's stated mission.

      A station which is committed at its core to leftist values has a duty to protect its workers, which includes honoring and celebrating their right to unionize. Hiring a union-busting firm is the absolute opposite step which KBOO should be taking.

      An anti-union law firm is NOT what KBOO is about. Plus, it's expensive.

      KBOO is a community organization and all it's employees, volunteers & board members should act with the station and community's interest at heart. What has been coming out recently about behavior amongst KBOO's leadership is appalling and ridiculous.
