Skip to comments.Union rep join federal government safety inspectors on site visits to non-union businesses

SEIU and other labor unions can accompany the government inspectors on site visits due to a quiet and contested Obama administration rule clarification issued last year in response to a request from a union representative.
Maurice Baskin, an attorney representing the Associated Builders and Contractors and the National Association of Manufacturers, said in testimony before the House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections that OSHAs clarification letter violates the OSH Act and the National Labor Relations Act. Section 9 of the National Labor Relations Act holds that an authorized representative must be an agent from a union that a majority of the companys employees have chosen, according to Baskin.
By allowing outside union agents and community organizers access to nonunion employers private property, OSHA is injecting itself into labor-management disputes and casting doubt on its status as a neutral enforcer of the law, Baskin testified.

The core of national socialism, with a twist on who is uber and who is unter.
Of course they are. The entire Obama Administration is an unlawful tool of what is fast becoming a criminal labor movement. The only things missing are the jackboots, brown shirts and blood red banners.
The SEIU are jackboots, they just wear purple shirts.
With the exception of the federal entities indicated in the Constitution’s Clauses 16 & 17 of Section 8 of Article I as examples, entities under the exclusive legislative control of Congress, the states have never delegated to the feds, via the Constitution, the specific power to regulate intrastate labor or safety issues. Such issues are 10th Amendment-protected state power issues unless the states should decide to amend the Constitution to grant Congress the specific power to regulate them.
What if the business calls the police and claims the Union is trespassing?
Similiar happened to me 5 years ago in California.
The “Department of Industrial Relations” (California’s version of the dept of Labor) came to my farm with a member of the “Fair Labor Practices Board” (A union organization / non government) as well as another State agency (that monitored Worker’s Comp)
They questioned me and two contractors working on site. I had to follow up with answers, proofs etc for the next week then was in essence “let go”
The odd part is they all showed up in ONE vehicle from Sacramento
I had made the mistake (Like I’m probably doing here) of being outspoken against the unions and government....long story. I don’t have employees and refuse to own businesses here any more so can probably share this without worry of getting harassed again.
Exactly, or have there security guards say vamoose.
For the list.
Wow, SEIU are the new brown shirts.
Most likely the business will be fined out of existence.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Government by the Union Thug, of the Union Thug, and For the Union Thug...
