Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah have recently enacted amendments to their State Constitutions guaranteeing workers the right to secret ballots in union elections. These States enacted the amendments in order to thwart the injustices of a threatened “Card Check” law by Obama. Obama and Holder are having the National Labor Relations Board go after these states as Obama want to make sure that if employers can exercise the option of recognizing a union when a majority of workers sign cards that support unionizing. So much for protecting the workers! If workers sign cards without the option of utilizing a secret ballot vote, what guarantees do the workers have that they will not be coerced? In the next general election, why don’t we all just stand up and raise our left hand if we want Obama and our right hand if we want justice.
Now that the NLRB has been taken over by the Unions, workers can relax. They have nothing to fear but being coerced to pay dues to a union they may not want and who does not support their best interest.
Right-To-Work laws in 22 states will be the next agenda for the left-wing union controlled NLRB. The Taft-Hartley Act in 1947 prohibits agreements between labor unions and employers making membership or payment of union dues or fees a condition of employment, either before or after hiring. Obama has already gotten around this with his Stimulus Bill by tacking on a provision that workers on the Federal Projects have to pay union dues even though they do not have to join the union in order to work.
Unions used to be for the workers but now they are for the politicians, specifically progressive democrats. Unions collect/extort dues from workers then contribute to Obama’s and his cohorts election campaigns. Obama “gave” the UAW a large chunk of equity in the “new” General Motors as payback for election support.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is extortion of our labor force with the sole purpose of re-electing progressive liberals. The next step is to have Andy Stern’s SEIU unionize all healthcare workers, including doctors, with or without their permission. They will use the victory from the current lawsuit to strong-arm hospitals and clinics so their management agrees that non-secret ballot cards can be used to unionize their workers OR Obama will cut off their payment reimbursements from Medicare or Obamacare.
We are in a fight to the death for States’ Rights and so far the Federal Government is Winning…
If you think Obama is moving to the center, you are being duped again like you were when you elected him!
