Skip to comments.U.S. Plans to Sue 4 States Over Laws Requiring Secret Ballots for Unionizing

The National Labor Relations Board announced on Friday that it planned to sue Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah in an effort to invalidate recently approved state constitutional amendments that prohibit private sector workers from choosing a union through a process known as card check.
The labor board asserts that the amendments conflict with federal laws and are pre-empted by those laws.
The state amendments were promoted by various conservative groups concerned that Congressional Democrats and President Obama would enact legislation allowing unions to insist on using card check, in which an employer recognizes a union as soon as a majority of workers sign pro-union cards. That method makes it possible for employees to unionize without elections. But Congressional Republicans blocked such legislation.

I think the 10th amendment trumps the Federal labor laws
10th Amendment doesn’t exist in Obamaland.
Card Check = Creeping Communism
Mom! Eric pooped in his diaper again!
Card Check via the courts....
They want to unionize everyone. forcibly.
easier to control and never ending funds for the left and Democrats
If anyone doesn’t think that we are in a war for the life of this Republic then they are either totally deaf dumb and blind or just off the last rocket from Mars.
wait until state federal political elections are run this way. votes will be collected by union thugs and LEO unions
This is the best news. The more they push the more frightened Americans become. Even union members value liberty and privacy.
They just keep pushing the mushy middle over to our side. This bodes well for 2012.
We live in interesting times.
And what part of the constitution permits this?
Outrage, Defund the NLRB.
Gee, the DOJ has me convinced that secret ballot elections are downright unfair!! In fact, no election should have secret ballots. After all, doesn’t the government have a overriding interest in who I vote for in presidential and congressional elections. Who knows, in my ignorance I might even vote for the wrong candidate.
This Republic is stone cold dead. The only question is whether it can be rebirthed again.
Add 4 more states that Obama can write off in 12
Meanwhile, some idiot republicans are planning to sit next to rats during the state of the union.
Arizona now holds the record for being sued by the piggies in the District of Corruption. Woot!!!!! Let’s see. They sued us over the illegal aliens and now they are going to sue over their whinyass, commie union thugs. Just don’t get no better than that. I’m proud to be an Arizonan.
In the 2008 election cycle, labor unions reported spending nearly $80 million on independent broadcast advertising, mail and internal advocacy to help elect or defeat federal candidates.
