Let your voice be heard today to protect this precious right

In office less than 40 days, President Obama is already working to strip American workers of their right to vote by secret ballot in union elections.

Under a bill being proposed by President Obama, secret ballots are tossed aside and workers are forced to vote in front of intimidating union officials. The bill being pushed by President Obama is deceptively named the "Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA)."

Socialists and Communists are very good at deceprive politically correct wording. This is just another attempt at removing your Constitutionally guaranteed Rights.

It’s time to start dismantling the entire corrupt Democrat establishment. It doesn’t matter what piece you start with - George Soros, the Daily KOS, the idiots in Hollywood. It can’t wait for the perfect candidate to come along, or for all conservatives to agree on something. Start taking them down now.

While this is indeed thuggery, how does this threaten the rights of someone like me, who isn't in a union??
and I why do I care?? We're talking internal union elections, not real ones. I don't see the affect on non-union workers. Am I missing something??

"this is indeed thuggery"

We're standing against these Union thugs with our fellow man. We don't need this type of precedence.

If you work in a company that currently is non-unionized, you or your co-workers could be threatened by leg-breakers to cast conforming votes. And then you would be unionized, like it or not.

Thanks I haven’t paid much attention to this, because I’ve always considered it a union thing. I’m a contractual state employee who serves at the whim of the Gov. of NY. So while this has no bearing on me, I do stand with those workers who could be victimized by this.
