Posts Tagged ‘Wish List’
Big Labor must be counting its blessing to have an administration in place willing to ignore the will of citizens and job creators. In last year’s midterm election, voters sent a powerful message to the executive and legislative branches of government: less government intervention and no paybacks. Despite this, the Obama Administration continues to signal their willingness to reward their Big Labor allies through a series of appointments, regulatory favors, and other paybacks.
Big Labor remains intent on empowering government bureaucrats that will force unionization on employers and employees alike. Their agenda of eliminating the secret ballot and mandating contracts on workers could not and would not pass the legislature. As the Workforce Fairness Institute gears up for the New Year, we must remain vigilant and ready to take action against threats from Big Labor that could undermine small businesses wherever they may arise.
And to make that point, just last week the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) threatened to sue four states for approving amendments to their constitutions guaranteeing the right to a secret ballot in union elections.
Big Labor’s 2011 Wish List is long, but the small-business community is strong. Together, we can work to preserve American jobs, support small businesses, and beat back Big Labor.
Big Labor’s 2011 Wish List:
#1 – More “Payback” From The Obama Administration.
#2 – Fewer Rights For Workers & Small Businesses.
#3 – NLRB Supported Electronic Voting Allowing Workers To Be Intimidated & Coerced.
#4 – NLRB Supported Reversal Of 45-Day Window For Election Request.
#5 – Kicking Out Girl Scouts & Salvation Army In Front Of Stores If Union Bosses Can’t Access Shoppers & Employees.
#6 – Eliminating Employees’ Rights To Hear Their Employer’s Perspective On Union Organizing.
#7 – Take More Dues From Members’ Paychecks To Use On 2012 Political Campaigns.
#8 – Force More Companies Into Bankruptcy By Making Demands That They Can’t Meet.
#9 – Seek More Bailouts At The Expense Of Taxpayers.
#10 – Insert More Cronies Into Administrative Agencies To Do Their Bidding.
Big Labor’s latest scheme may surprise you, too. The most recent targets in the push by union bosses to force unionization on employees and employers are groups like the Girl Scouts, American Red Cross and Salvation Army. Recently, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) determined that companies must place notices in workplaces to inform employees about their right to form a collective bargaining unit.
