Union's Card Check Bill "Misleading"

E. Thomas McClanahan, of the Kansas City Star, sees through Big Labor’s claims on the Card Check Forced Dues Bill:

Union organizers know that signatures on cards don’t necessarily represent the real sentiments of workers. Many employees sign cards and then — in the privacy of the voting booth — vote against forming a union.

That’s why organizers usually make sure to collect cards from a supermajority of workers before calling for an election. And that’s why the secret ballot must be maintained, so that the organizing process reflects the real preferences of workers.
