As soon as Janus came down the Buckeye Institute began running digital ads to encourage union members to continue accepting services from their union while declining to pay for those services.
They created a new brand and web page for this devious campaign. This is where they were directing their ads – notice the misleading name “Workers Choose.”
And it wasn’t just a few ads. Remember…they are well funded. In fact, every ad we found in the Facebook archives for the Buckeye Institute was aimed at this purpose. This is not passive reporting on the benefits of letting workers opt out. It’s an all-out assault on unions.
