Skip to comments.Connecticut Governor Enacts Card Check Through Executive Order
Posted on 09/22/2011 12:34:58 PM PDT by Nachum
Continuing a fiat governance style that is right out of the Obama playbook, Democratic and Working Families Party Governor Dannel Malloy issued two executive orders yesterday that will force daycare providers and home healthcare workers in Connecticut to join unions. The orders, his ninth and tenth since taking office in January, will force the states 4,000 daycare providers to add over $1 million in dues to union coffers, and remove the right to secret ballot election for these workers by instituting a card check process.

But hey this won’t hurt the two parent working family that is struggling as it is. What’s a few more bucks to the daycare. You can just cut out 5 large pizzas a month to cover it.//////
Somewhere Ayn Rand is smiling............
What’s next? Force parents to utilize these Union providers?
I love his quote that he is for worker’s rights to organize. What a liar. If he really cared about worker’s “rights”, he would not force an open ballot.
Which will drive the Ministerium für Staatssicherheit into high gear. They'll start raiding those types of places.
Who’s gonna watch the babies when the daycare worker gets her union-ordered coffee and lunch breaks and goes into overtime t 8 Hours?
Were I a daycare provider, I’d go Galt before I’d send money to a union
Maybe start a petsitting busineess!
We’re clearly entering an epoch where any pretense of the ‘rat party being separate from unions is completely blown. The ‘rat party, unions, big govt are all synonyms... along with “the enemy within that wants to suck the life out of the private sector”.
Shhhhhh... don't give them ideas :(
coming to MN soon courtesy Gov.Marx Dayton...
nooooo, of course not. Nor will it hurt the single mother who prefers to work and actually make something of herself, rather than raise her child or children on welfare, and has all she can do to pay for childcare as it is. The state needs to make it even more difficult for these mothers to work!
The state has already all but prohibited that, apillar. The increase in regulations for child care are astounding.
Open Ballot? Those who throw the letters out will find themselves in a union they didn’t even have a say in.
These people do not work for the same employer, I thought tiny businesses that employed a few people were exempt from unionization? Not any more I guess.
Liberals are simply insane.
Malloy faced Republican Tom Foley, the former United States Ambassador to Ireland under President George W. Bush, in the race for governor. In the last Quinnipiac University poll released on the morning before Election Day, Malloy trailed Foley 48% to 45%.
According to The New York Times on November 3, Malloy was officially elected governor; they later placed Foley in the lead with no declared winner. The Associated Press had at one point also placed Foley ahead by 8,424 votes because they hadn't added the votes from New Haven or Bridgeport at that time. In the days following the election, there was controversy over several polling locations in Bridgeport remaining open until 10 p.m. on Election Day due to ballot shortages. Foley's team looked into the events that took place in Bridgeport and determined that there was no fraud involved.
Let me guess cthe Democrat and Working Families Party should be renamed Democrap and SEIU Party.
Hey, the voters in CT. had a choice last year and they chose to elect a commie for their governor. I’m sure many of those being affected by these orders voted for the dictator-wanna-be.
The “smart” people the dictator’s royal orders power.
The drooling libs that infest CT got what they voted for. Hope they stew in it.
Whos gonna watch the babies when the daycare worker gets her union-ordered coffee and lunch breaks and goes into overtime t 8 Hours?
A lot of us in CT know Malloy stole the election. Fraud and the state labor unions got him Selected. It’s the inner cities and portions of Connecticut that should belong to New York that also doomed us.
Not everyone chose to elect a commie.
But then, take note of my screen name.
More unions ,less business. CT is going down a greased hill.
Lol. I can imagine the union rules for daycare!
Falling: call 911 to pick up baby; have two union reps present when baby is raised.
Choking: call 911 to perform heimlich (not covered in contract); have two union reps present when attempting to remove foreign object.
The collapsing birth rate and thus long term extinction of our civilization make this additional pressure all the more dangerous.
Honestly at this point we might hope for a compete collapse rather then a slow death. Maybe more women will start focusing on children rather then economic prosperity in this life.
All I can say for sure is the one that do focus on having more kids instead of being more successful in this one life are the ones that will continue to exist(genetically) in the future.
We are breeding the so called “high achievers” out of existences.
Is this Dayton person any relation to the family that started Dayton’s department stores?
I wonder how many of those employees were forced to be unionized???
Marxist bastards. All of them.
same guy. (inherited his family’s money)
Daytons became Marshal Fields, I think.
These people do not work for the same employer, I thought tiny businesses that employed a few people were exempt from unionization? Not any more I guess.””
Similar legislation is being pounded thru the Calif legislature.
Also a bill concerning BABYSITTING-—where your babysitter needs a ‘break for bathroom & rest” every 4 hours & a ‘substitute babysitter’ must be hired for that break. Also mandatory WORKMEN’S COMP for babysitters & METICULOUS records of payroll & paychecks.
Wait until they go after the teen age boys for lawn mowing.
Glad I left California when I did.
Democraps think the only working people are union members. Boy are they misinformed.
Unions are the modern day plantations. Obama is the overseer.
Let's not dignify these abuses of power, even with a sarcastic label like above. THIS ... IS ... TYRANNY!
Useless to pretend we live and work under any sort of free enterprise system anymore. The time Benjamin Franklin presaged, when "... people discover they can vote themselves money" has definitely arrived. Now we have to push back a tidal wave of union corrupt/elitist investor-banker non-productive filty rich (ex. Soros, Buffet) laws and regulations. (Was that a run-on sentence???)
I'd rather we'd been hit by a giant tsunami than what has transpired in my lifetime.
BTW, just what kind of a party is the 'Working Families Party'? Hmmm, let me guess ... .. .. . . . . . . or let me gestapo!?!
Would there be a reason you are pinging me?
That is a good question. I guess the answer is that Executive branch has been allowed to expand and expand their powers over the decades without any real challenge.
Just so everyone knows, Malloy won when a box of ballots was ‘found’ in Bridgeport (a solid Dem city), after a supposed election problem with ballots in Bridgeport, so polls were open an extra 2 hours in that city. It was a very close election.
I doubt it will do any such thing. It's a political stunt and the details can be found in this article.
Read the article cited in my post #40.
Sir, yes sir!
“How can any executive order apply to persons who are not employees of the executive branch?
I don’t get it but I heard the commie governor of MN is considering doing something similar, but the signatures the union collected by subterfuge in MN are mostly wayyyyy too old. He might just conveniently ignore that and do the same as CT.”
Beyond lawlessness, you could have such a large mass of laws passed by the state that the executive order could simply be claiming to implement any part of the vast body of existing laws.
A body so vast as to authorize almost anything at the governors discretion.
the ultimate answer to unlawful authority is civil disobedience
If formerly independent daycare providers and babysitters want to resist being forced to underwrite unions, and have any means of going Galt, time to plan for it
We all know that babysitters and elder care workers must be represented against evil and exploitive parents and relatives of the elderly, who would see them toil in sweat shop conditions
Babysitters of thr world unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains!!
You are correct about Minnesota. Many of the signatures collected here are not only old but were collected with lies. No one knew that signing would be a request to unionize.
The “smart” people - the international socialists who want to “rule” are thinking they are above the rule of law now. These people are treasonous.
They have good reason to think that. They very rarely are prosecuted or legally challenged with they break the law. If they do get nailed in a court, there is no big penality and treason is never mentioned. We need law that defines treason for this generation’s “ruler” wannabes and we need to prosecute it.
So, what happens if they don't join? Do they go "private"?
