NLRB To Force Businesses To Turn Over Workers Private Info To Unions?

Posted by Brian

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is said to be considering a rule that would affect 97% of private business in the country.  That rule would require that non-union businesses must provide the names, phone numbers, e-mails, and even work schedules to union organizers, presumably making it easier for union to organize non-union shops.
This would be an outrage!  Is this the Soviet Union?! Are the unions now just another arm of the federal government and the Democrats? The answer is: Yes.  Especially as Barack Obama and his marxist thugs see it.
Remember, this is the same NLRB who filed a lawsuit against Boeing to prevent them from building a 737 MAX jet at its plant in South Carolina, instead of Washington State. The reason? South Carolina is a "right to work" state.  That is, it is non-union.  For Boeing, the move made financial sense, as the costs of building the planes in South Carolina would be significantly lower. This didn't sit well with the Boeing employees in Washington, who along with the NLRB, filed suit.  Boeing eventually agreed to keep the production in Washington, the result of strong-arm tactics by a politicized agency packed with Obama leftists, which included former SEIU attorney Craig Becker (now with the AFL-CIO).
It is premature to say that this is a done deal, but nothing from this administration should be dismissed lightly.  This type of invasion of privacy by the Obama Administration, especially with their extremely close ties to the AFL-CIO, SEIU, and the Teamsters, is entirely believable.  In fact, it's entirely consistent with his whole policy and ideology.
Stay tuned!

NLRB To Force Companies To Turn Over Employee Telephone Numbers & E-Mails To Unions?

*UPDATED: November 15, 2012–Now that the re-election of Barack Obama has taken place, this is back on the table.

President Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is considering a rule that would force private businesses to turn over their workers’ personal information — such as phone numbers, email addresses, and work schedules — to union organizers.  

While this rule would be intended to make it easier for union bosses to organize workers at businesses that do not have a union presence, it would also have the unintended effect of making workers vulnerable to harassment.
