Latest NLRB Big Labor Handout – Ambush “Elections”
If punishing employees in Right to Work states isn't enough to please the union bosses, then the NLRB continues to try. Their latest giveaway is an effort to impose "quickie elections" -- a blatant effort to ensure that workers do not get both sides of the unionization issue. The Washington Examiner's Philip Klein looks at the latest union bailout: With union membership precipitously declining (it was less than 7 percent in the private sector last year), big labor has been desperate to expand its ranks by any means necessary. As Peter Schaumber, former NLRB chairman, warned last week, "Imagine a political election in which only one party were given the opportunity to tell voters its side of the story, and could set an election date only days away, all without prior notice to the other side."
