A letter in today’s Washington Examiner from Rick Berman, who is 100 percent correct:
Secret ballot elections are still endangered, despite bill’s defeat
The death of the Employee Free Choice Act has been greatly exaggerated. The action in the Senate was simply a dress rehearsal for the real battle in 2009, when union leaders hope to have elected a new (and more compliant) president.
The truly frightening part is that a bill that would virtually eliminate secret ballot elections in the workplace made it to a floor vote in the U.S. Senate. Community and business leaders should spend time now educating the public on this anti-democratic bill, rather than waiting for union leaders to pick the time and place of the next fight.
