Big Labor Wants U.N. to Decide U.S. Law

Readers of this blog are familiar with the ongoing efforts by the union bosses to transfer authority over U.S. labor law to United Nation affiliate organizations like the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Doug Bandow has written a summary of the efforts which include campaigns to expand United Nations access to U.S. work sites for inspections.

Bandow writes:

. . . [T]hese issues should be decided in the U.S. by Americans — not by an unaccountable bureaucracy an ocean away.

If ILO staffers come calling, Americans should welcome them warmly and inform them that the U.S. is a free country in which liberty runs both ways. Workers can choose to unionize. They also can choose not to unionize. Ultimately those choices will be decided by Americans in America.
