As big labor tries to grind out 60 votes on the Card Check Forced Unionism bill, it is critical to note that the two Democrat Senators from Montana have yet to stake out an official position. If you live in the state, please let your Senators know of your opposition to forced unionism. From the Missoulian:
Although Montana Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester co-sponsored the 2007 bill, they are not tipping their hands on how they will vote on the 2009 version.
“It would be very hard to support the bill in its current form, but that is why I’m working with my colleagues in the Senate to bring some common-sense modifications to the bill to make sure it balances workers’ interests with small-business interests,” Baucus said.
Baucus went on to say that any legislation that passes “must be good for both Montana workers and Montana small business owners.”
Forced Unionism is not good for workers or small business people Senator!
Tester also wouldn’t say what he how he intends to vote.
