Why Doesn’t The UAW Want A Secret-Ballot Election At VW?
It is a long-standing precedent that unions are legally allowed to lie
to workers in order to get their support–and lie they do.
Take, for example, Carol Wilson, a Volkswagen employee in Chattanooga who was misled into signing a UAW authorization card.

“When I was approached to sign a card a year and a half ago, it was, ‘Oh, the card just means you want more information.‘”
Will The Supreme Court End Union Organizing By Extortion?
On Wednesday, the United States Supreme Court heard a case that has the potential to devastate the what’s left of the private-sector union movement. The case tangentially involves something that, to many laypersons, often looks like a form of extortion (or bribery) but is currently legal under U.S. labor law, wherein a union uses economic, political and media pressure (also known as Corporate Campaigns) to | Read More »
Are #ObamaCare Navigators Teaming With Battleground Texas To Turn The Lone Star State Blue?
No, your information is not safe under ObamaCare…at least not in Texas. Earlier this year, a left-wing group of organizers and operatives formed a group called Battleground Texas. Headed by a former field director of Obama for America, Battleground Texas’ sole aim is to turn Texas from a so-called “red state” to another California–that is, almost singularly controlled by liberal Democrats. Publicly, Battleground Texas is | Read More »
After Sticking U.S. With A Sick Health Care Law, Did Unions Just Get A Sweetheart Deal On ObamaCare?
Do you remember all of the fuss that union bosses were making a couple of months ago about ObamaCare destroying the ‘health and well being of their members?
Well, as it turns out, Barack Obama may have covered his union buddies’ backs after all.

Election Outcomes & How New Jersey Voters Decided That Jobs Are No Longer Important
Already plagued with the highest property taxes in the nation, extortionate tolls on pot-hole plagued highways, a manufacturing base that has exited decades ago, and a shrinking pharmaceutical industry, the New Jersey AFL-CIO and the Working Families United for New Jersey convinced the voters of New Jersey to increase the minimum wage to $8.25 per hour.
If it ended there, perhaps the New York suburb would be able to survive based on its ability to siphon off of those who commute in and out of New York.
However, the unions didn’t just settle with a minimum wage increase…

Why So Shocked? You Were NEVER Meant To Keep Your Health Insurance Under #ObamaCare
It takes some time to fundamentally transform America and, while they may be wrong about a lot of things almost everything, in this instance, Democrats are right about one thing: The term transition is absolutely the correct term when discussing the debacle known as ObamaCare. You see, while they will never openly admit it (excepting, perhaps, in the darkest recesses of some corner inside the | Read More »
On #ObamaCare, Obama Had A Choice: Honesty Or Deception [He Chose The Latter].
This past week, a lot of people realized that President Obama
lied to misled
the American people on his “you can keep your insurance” pledge.
In fact, up to 93 million Americans may lose their employer-sponsored health plans on top of the million of others who are losing their individually-bought plans. The fact that the Obama Administration knew this in 2010 makes it even more damning.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Obama aides actually debated whether to be honest with Americans or to deceive them. The Obama Administration chose deception.

Why Unions Are Pouring Money Into Virginia & Why You Should Care
Union bosses and other out-of-state liberals–from Hollywood to New York–are pouring millions into the Virginia governor’s race.
They are, without a doubt, hell-bent on defeating Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and putting long-time Democratic party boss and fund-raiser Terry McAuliffe into the governor’s seat.
More than that, however, the Left may be using the governor’s race to put the final nail in the coffin for Republicans in a state that has swung from reliably red to almost blue.

Obama’s Kangaroo Court Now In Session: Senate confirms another union lawyer as NLRB prosecutor
Ever since July, when Republicans caved in to Harry Reid’s “nuclear option” threat, GOP resistance to Barack Obama’s appointments to agencies like the National Labor Relations Board (as well as others) has been virtually non-existent. A day after Sen. Lindsey Graham’s empty threat to block appointments until his questions about Benghazi were answered, the Senate voted to confirm controversial union lawyer Richard Griffin as the | Read More »
Powerful Boston Teamster Boss Faces Suspension For Threatening To ‘Punish’ Members
In the mid 1980s, the President’s Commission on Organized Crime issued a report stating that the four major labor unions were under the influence of organized crime and run undemocratically at the detriment of their members. At the top of the list was the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. In 1989, in order to settle a RICO suit by the U.S. Justice Department, the Teamsters’ International | Read More »
The Military Has A Term (or Acronym) To Describe The ObamaCare Rollout: FUBAR
With the White House now hinting agreement with the Republicans
who called for a delay in penalizing individuals under the ObamaCare mandate, the disastrous rollout of Barack Obama’s singular signature piece of legislation passed during his presidency can be summed up in one military term (or acronym): FUBAR
Notwithstanding the fact that the mainstream media has been near-unanimously stuck on declaring that healthcare.gov’s problems were caused by a mere “glitch,” everything about ObamaCare’s rollout, thus far, has proved to be a disaster of epic proportions. It has lived down to the most dire warnings of becoming a “third-world experience.”

Four Volkwagen employees opposed to being unionized by the United Auto Workers in Tennessee have filed an unfair labor practice charge against Volkswagen management for coercing them into accepting union representation.

VW’s German Union May Be Violating U.S. Labor Laws. Will Obama’s NLRB Do Anything About It?
With Volkswagen employees delivering an anti-UAW petition
to management last Friday, the big battle over the UAW’s do-or-die efforts to unionize VW’s employees in Chattanooga, Tennessee is heating up.
Although VW employees have filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board over the UAW’s deceptive card-signing tactics, it remains to be seen whether Barack Obama’s union appointees at the NLRB will address any union-related violations of VW employees’ rights.

NPS Threatened WWII Vets With Arrest But Now Opens Mall For Union Bosses’ Immigration Rally During #Shutdown
Updated. It truly seemed like we’re living in a world dictated to us by Lilliputian bureaucrats when a group of World War II veterans were threatened with arrest for having the temerity last week to visit the World War II Memorial during the government shutdown. Now, however, said Lilliputian bureaucrats who attempted to block America’s octogenarian war heroes last week are showing their two-faced true | Read More »
Unbelievable: During #Shutdown, Government Union Officials Exempt From Furloughs
One would think that during a government shutdown that has nearly shuttered many government agencies and caused thousands of “ordinary” government workers to be furloughed, union officials on the government dole would be among those sharing the pain of their constituents. However, that is apparently not
the case in this
As unbelievable as it may seem, Barack Obama has exempted government workers who are union officials from being furloughed.
