Corner v. Postal Workers Local 7140
A member of a postal workers local who was running for president in the local union election was told by her union that if she wanted to exercise her statutory right to have campaign literature mailed to the union electorate, she would have to use the union’s return address on her mailing. She needed to know the addresses of members who did not successfully receive her literature, however. We represented her in a suit against her local union under section 401(c) of the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, requires unions to comply with reasonable requests from members to distribute their campaign literature to all members by mail or otherwise. After we filed suit, the union agreed to her request.
