Good to know that at least a few states believe the individual has more rights than a union.
The federal powers are enumerated in the constitution except for the occacsional ‘fix’ from the left by and large.
Okkkkkkkkkkk... I like this idea then! ;-)
Here’s an idea:
I belong to a union (IBEW), and I will inform my local that id EFCA passes, I will get out. (I live in a right-to-work state; Arkansas).
We need to get a nationwide campaign going to do just this, and where better to start some activism than FreeRepublic. So, if there are any union members here, write a letter to the editor of your papers threatening to get out of unions if EFCA passes. Let’s see what happens...
Federal take precedence I think.
Given who will be setting federal law, I’d recommend only following state law.
It has since the “War between the States”.
