Union Briefs for Monday, March 18, 2013: VW & UAW conspiring to unionize Chattanooga plant?
In these United States, for the most part and despite union attempts to to the contrary*, workers still have the right to choose whether or not to be unionized.
However, in 2010, when Obama’s NLRB legitimized sweetheart unions and gave unions the ability to engage in behind-the-scenes negotiations with employers–even when they do not represent said employers’ employees–the NLRB set the stage to give unscrupulous unions access to unionize workers through the back-door..

Fallout On Obama’s Killing Of Keystone Jobs Continues As “Repulsed” Laborers’ Union Quits Alliance
The fallout over Barack Obama’s decision to kill 20,000 (mostly) union jobs on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline project continues as the Laborers International Union of North America left the BlueGreen Alliance Friday afternoon.

Pelosi Backpedals on #Occupy Movement
Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s penchant for hypocritical hyperbole is once again manifesting itself. Her latest example is regarding the #Occupy movement. Just a few short months ago, before the #Occupy movement exposed itself as a bunch of entitlement-driven neo-Communist criminals, Pelosi (and other Democrats) wholly embraced the squatters’ rag-tag movement. This was Pelosi then: Despite the fact that unions are now funding, coordinating, aiding and abetting | Read More »
CT Gov Schemes With SEIU To Unionize Day Care Providers & Others Without A Vote
Connecticut’s union-bought governor, Daniel Malloy, is apparently scheming with the SEIU to unionize his state’s daycare providers and personal care attendants through a secret plan using the flawed method of card-check unionization. By stripping individuals of their right to vote on whether or not to unionize, Malloy is virtually guaranteeing money (paid by taxpayers) will go into his SEIU cronies’ pockets. According to Raising Hale’s | Read More »

California’s Jerry Brown Shows Some Sanity With Card-Check Veto
It’s bad enough when the federal government forced a man-made drought in order to save a fresh-water sardine, costing farmers and farm workers their livelihoods. However, when the lunatic Left in California’s legislature passed SB104–an Orwellian bill to effectively strip California’s migrant farm workers of their right to a secret-ballot election–it seemed almost a fait accompli that liberal governor Jerry Brown (who granted farm workers the | Read More »
Sen. Murray Needs Reality Check On Card Check
With Washington’s unemployment rate hovering near 9%, workers and small businesses in the state need advocates in Congress who will stand with them as opposed to special interests promoting a job-killing agenda. But unfortunately, just the opposite is true in The Evergreen State. Senator Patty Murray has decided the union boss agenda supplants the concerns of employees and employers in her state.

Don’t Blink-Democrats Aren’t Done Killing Jobs Yet
While the Obama Administration takes its victory lap with the Democrats and their Union buddies over the job-killing Financial Reform bill they just passed, a host of other initiatives that would give special favors to Unions are waiting in the wings for the right time to be brought up for consideration.
