‘Card Check’ Forced-Unionism

To most Americans, the term “card check” means nothing.But to union bosses, this term potentially means billions of extra dollars collected in forced union dues, above and beyond the $7 billion in forced dues and “fees” that unions already report collecting each year on forms filed with the U.S. Labor Department.

The Freedom from Union Violence Act closes a loophole in the federal Hobbs Anti-Extortion Act, eliminating the special judicially-created exemption in this law for union-related violence and extortion and holding union officials to the same legal standards as other Americans.

Judd Gregg (R-NH), would make Big Labor bosses monopoly bargaining agents for local and state police, firefighters, county paramedics, and other public-safety officers in all 50 states.If enacted, H.R. 413 & S. 1611, by federal fiat, would force thousands of state and local governments to recognize union officials as public-safety officers’ “exclusive” bargaining agents.

Salting & the Truth In Employment Act

“Salting” is an organized conspiracy on the part of Big Labor bosses, aided and abetted by the pro-forced-unionism dominated National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), to obtain access to forced-dues dollars from non-union workers by destabilizing non-union workforces from within. [More…]
