While Obama’s out-of-control, unconstitutional National Labor Relations Board has earned the bulk of the headlines, Obama’s Labor Department has quietly done Big Labor’s bidding since Day One.
And now, eager to pay back his union-boss benefactors who unleashed another billion-dollar political spending blitz in 2012, Obama has nominated another anti-worker, pro-Big Labor ideologue to be Labor Secretary.
And I need your help to kill the nomination.
On behalf of the 2.8 million members of the National Right to Work Committee, I’ve already sent a letter to every member of the U.S. Senate, urging them to oppose the confirmation of forced-unionism partisan Thomas Perez.
But it’s vital your U.S. Senators hear from concerned citizens like you.
That’s why I hope you’ll authorize your free fax petition right away urging your U.S. Senators to vote AGAINST the confirmation of Thomas Perez.
Let me tell you more about what’s at stake.
You see, under Obama’s first Labor Secretary, Hilda Solis, the Department of Labor went on a rampage to keep workers in the dark about their rights and enable the forced unionization of workers across the country by:
*** Slashing the budget of the Office of Labor Management Standards, the federal agency that enforces union disclosure laws and serves as a watchdog against union-boss corruption;
*** Gutting transparency standards to make it more difficult for workers to learn how union bosses are really spending the forced dues seized from their paychecks;
*** Refusing to enforce anti-kickback provisions, allowing workers’ wages to be kicked back to employers in union-sponsored job target funds.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Even more troubling, because Barack Obama is no longer accountable to the voters, I’m afraid the worst is yet to come.
And everything we know about Thomas Perez strongly suggests he will use the power of his position to promote the agenda of Big Labor at the expense of hard-working Americans:
*** As Maryland’s Secretary of Labor, Thomas Perez greased the skids to more easily force unionization on childcare providers.
That scheme mirrors Big Labor’s nationwide strategy to force in-home care providers — even parents, grandparents, and babysitters who take care of sick and disabled children with state assistance — into dues-paying ranks.
*** Perez repeatedly tapped into the Big Labor well to fill political appointments.
In fact, Perez even gave a political appointment to a former organizer from the Laborers International Union of North America, an organization the Department of Labor Inspector General’s racketeering section considered corrupt.
*** While on the Montgomery County Council, Perez allegedly used his position to influence, intimidate and pressure employers on behalf of Communications Workers of America union officials.
Attempting to justify those tactics, Perez made the offensive and derogatory comment that unionized workers “would be more productive, more motivated and more loyal” than non-union workers.
The more than 93 percent of American private-sector workers free from union control don’t need that kind of bias at the Department of Labor.
Not only that, our economy just can’t afford it.
That’s why you and I MUST do everything we can to DEFEAT Thomas Perez’s nomination to be Labor Secretary and send the President another strong message against expanding forced unionism.
So please, authorize your free action fax to your U.S. Senators insisting they oppose Perez’s nomination.
With the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee expected to act on the nomination on May 8, it’s vital you act at once.
In addition to your signed petition, I hope you’ll consider chipping in with a contribution of $10 or more to help us stop this nomination in its tracks.
With your support, we can implement our battle plan to mobilize up to one million Americans against Perez’s nomination.
Email. Phones. Even radio or TV ads if funding permits. Whatever it takes to stop Obama’s nomination dead in its tracks.
But most importantly, your U.S. Senators must hear from you right away.
Please authorize your free action fax at once.
