Union bosses have spent the last several years in a deceitful effort to enrich themselves and destroy our economy and individual freedom with something called “card check”.
Under card check, union bosses wanting to add to their client base would pass around cards at a given company. On each card would be written an employee’s name and a box to check whether the employee wanted a union or not. If over half the employees wanted a union, then they all would be forced to join and pay dues.
As with all such elections, anyone not voting or voting against the union would be subject to reprisal. Given the brutal history of union organizers, threats of violence would not even need to be expressed.
Union organizers always cry about management intimidating workers into staying out of unions, but the truth is nothing like that. Unions make it harder for a person’s hard work to pay off, since they reward sloth. Ambitious, hard-working people know they should stay away from unions if they want to get ahead.
No one should be forced to pay a union boss for exercising his right to trade his labor for pay. And no one should be made to fear wanting to do so on his own.
Rep. John Kline & the Secret Ballot Protection Act
Congressman John Kline [R-MN] has been one of the House of Representatives’ most vocal opponents of SEIU’s labor board appointee, Craig Becker, as well as a vocal defender of workers’ right to choose by secret-ballot whether or not to become unionized. In that role, he has stood strong against union bosses as they have worked to strip workers right to a secret-ballot through passage of the job-destroying (and delusionally dubbed) Employee
“Job creation and American competitiveness are vital national priorities. As Chairman, I will ensure they are at the forefront of the Education and Labor Committee agenda.”
Given the five year push by union bosses to rid employees of their right to vote by secret-ballot, as well as this week’s NLRB decision institutionalizing card-check by collusion, Kline and his fellow Republicans are well suited to re-introduce the Secret Ballot Protection Act.
