Card Check Will Be Back
The National Association of Manufacturer’s blog points to a letter to the editor in today’s Washington Examiner that discusses the importance of educating business people about the potential of losing secret ballot elections for union organizing in the workplace. The threat is real, and the recent vote in this year’s action in the U.S. Congress is just the beginning:
“The death of the Employee Free Choice Act has been greatly exaggerated. The action in the Senate was simply a dress rehearsal for the real battle in 2009, when union leaders hope to have elected a new (and more compliant) president.
The truly frightening part is that a bill that would virtually eliminate secret ballot elections in the workplace made it to a floor vote in the U.S. Senate. Community and business leaders should spend time now educating the public on this anti-democratic bill, rather than waiting for union leaders to pick the time and place of the next fight.”
