Arbitration Comes into Focus

The Card Check Forced Unionism bill’s binding arbitration provision nationalizes labor relations and puts the future of our economy in the hands of bureaucrats and arbitrators.    Behind closed doors, pro-big labor Senators appear ready to drop the provision eliminating the secret ballot so they can foist mandatory arbitration on all businesses in American.  Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), a true champion of working people, sees right through the union boss power play. Commenting on the situation, DeMint said “We suspected from the beginning that the binding arbitration was packaged with the elimination of the secret ballot in order to create a straw man they could take down later.”  He is 100% right.
