California's Proposition 226 (Paycheck Protection) of 1998

Proposition 226 was on California's June 1998 primary ballot. This video was produced for union members as part of an anti-226 campaign. The proposition would have required explicit individual member permission for unions to use dues for political purposes. Although the proposition originally polled well, it was defeated by unions in a major campaign effort. The success in defeating Prop 226 seemed to mark an uptick in union political activities in California, including the election in November 1998 of Gray Davis as governor. Davis's successor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, placed a similar proposition (this one confined to public sector unions) on the ballot in Nov. 2005, along with other propositions during the "Year of Reform" effort. All were defeated.
