The unions are trying a “back door approach” to increase their membership numbers. They have tried and failed to get their controversial HR 800 bill passed by Congress. Now they are petitioning the NLRB to grant them the right to force employers to bargain with unions, even when they don’t represent a majority of the work force.
The unions are also trying to reverse past NLRB rulings on supervisor status definitions, which would affect every industry from health care to the small tool and die workshop. The unions plan to be more active than ever during this election cycle.
It is very important to understand that the unions are very determined to increase their membership. Union leaders know that they are set to receive benefits, in the form of laws that will make it easier to organize if Democrats win more congressional seats and a Democrat is elected as President.
Unions have commitments of support from politicians who need their help in the form of contributions and grass roots manpower. Now is your turn to act!
