Skip to comments.Obama admin wants to require companies to give workers’ numbers, addresses to unions before

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union ambush elections in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union and in which workers phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions.
The administrations National Labor Relations Boards (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose workers personal information, including phone numbers, home addresses, and information about when they work their shifts.
Insiders close to the situation believe the new rules will almost certainly go into effect with few or no fundamental changes.
The members of the Board went through two days of grueling hearings that went into the evening. They asked plenty of probing questions. But I wonder if any minds were changed at all, Workforce Fairness Institute spokesman Fred Wszolek, who recently testified at an NLRB hearing in opposition to the rule, told The Daily Caller.

I am waiting for a fed-up union to demand the names, addresses and phone numbers of everyone who works in the White Hut - so they can begin unionization efforts. I’d really like to see that.
Unions have degraded into gangs.
When was the last time unions did anything for anybody except to enrich their thug leaders.
This regime is seriously beyond the pale when it comes to insidious tactics.
Roe v. Wade was decided on the basis of a “right to privacy” that was somehow discovered hidden in the Constitution.
Shouldn’t that same right to privacy apply here?
Intimidation. Just wow.
Seems the only “privacy” left anymore is for family members who forgot to list someone on their HIPAA form so those relatives can’t find out what is wrong with their relative, or talk to the doctor or even find out if their relative is in the hospital, etc. What a country!
Just say no...... fine? I don’t care about no steeeenkin fine.
Oh yes, did you ever get me the addresses of the union board’s mothers and sisters?
Actually, after thinking it over this may be a positive thing to do. Nothing the government does achieves its intended results. They obviously intend to allow union enforcers to confront people at home and intimidate them into voting for unions. In a pre-cell phone movie and pre-Facebook world this would have worked. But imagine hundreds or thousands of Facebook posts where three or four guys (they sent four to talk to my dad) are repeatedly shown saying, essentially, Gee, Mr. Robinson, this is a nice house. Shame if something should happen to it. And, yes, they really do say things like that. And, where it usually works in a one-on-four situation this will be a one-on-Facebook confrontation.
So what does he really have in mind with this? Stopping over a non-union workers home for dinner to “discuss” union benefits?
They are regrouping to take on Volkswagen.
only took me a split second to throw the materials in the trash at the mandatory public employees’ union presentation I was forced to attend when I was a public employee. I was outraged and appalled that such things existed.
To you FReepers who WILL NOT vote for any Republican that’s not “perfect”, here’s what you get. You get a DEMOCRAT Senate and the uncontested ability to stack the NLRB with ANYONE the president wants.
I sure hope you’re proud of your “principle”.
And no, you don’t have to take marching orders from Rove, especially in the Primaries - but yes, if you sit out November because the “perfect” Tea Party person is not on the ballot...you get this.
Remember the illegal and non-challenged appointments nobama made to the NLRB?
Had enuf yet?
I used to get all worked up about this GOP/Democrap stuff until my far younger cousin told me one time: why get all worked up, THEY ARE ALL THE SAME GUY.
Now I just blissfully load up and stock up with supplies while awaiting for this whole place to come tumbling down. I used to think it would take 50 years, that was in the late 70s, so the end is not too far off now. Between the fag rights, drug legalizations, border openings, military downgrades, welfare explosion, deficit expansions, decrepit education system, collapsing infastructure, corrupt politics and other things that currently don’t come to mind, it is a race to the oblivion.
The Bundy ranch thing is the latest example of a dying country. Just like any other dying organization, when things go against it, when it is seen in decay, regulations and process become paramount. It becomes process verses an outcome driven. With the courts running the country now, we have become a process country, not one of outcomes.
More evidence of Obama’s War on Privacy, which certainly should be emphasized to the voters. The only privacy they protect is in the matter of abortion.
My name? Soetero, Barry.
Address? 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, DC
Not true! They'll protect the privacy of political conservatives who've had their tax information leaked by government officials by refusing to prosecute or even name the person who leaked it.
