Card Check: So That Didn’t Happen …Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 by Admin
Card check was the 800-pound gorilla in the 2008 election. By 2010 it was the issue almost every politician — except die-hard friends of Big Labor bosses — was looking to avoid taking a vote on or voicing support for as the anti-democratic, job-killing Employee Free Choice Act languished.
Well, now Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) has announced the federal legislation’s Time of Death. He said today “It’s not going to happen now.”
And a good thing, too. Union members didn’t like it. The vast majority of employees (non-union) didn’t like it. Voters didn’t like it. Politicians didn’t like it. It was the bill so bad it had multiple fatal flaws.
As with all bad ideas, though, the core threat lives on the action of the seemingly captured agency of the National Labor Relations Board, where Member Craig Becker is pushing Big Labor’s agenda big time. Check out our friends at MyPrivateBallot.com for running news on the Board.
