  • Merkley Supports “An Attack on the Secret Ballot”

    Posted on Sep 29, 2008 by Oregonians for Employee Freedom

    A recent column by David Reinhard in the Oregonian highlights the problems behind the grossly mis-named “Employee Free Choice Act”.  This piece of legislation would strip workers of their right to a private ballot in the workplace when it comes to unionization.  Instead, workers would be subject to harassment, coercion and intimidation from union organizers […]

  • Al and Elwyn: Dancing to the Union Bosses’ Tune

    Posted on Sep 25, 2008 by Minnesotans for Employee Freedom

    If only it were so easy for us to get straight answers from Elwyn Tinklenberg and Al Franken.  Recently, the AFL-CIO “asked” Al and Elwyn their positions on EFCA.  The two obsequiously obediently willingly provided the AFL-CIO talking points in response. As with Ashwin Madia earlier this year, the Tinklenberg video isn’t exactly the stuff […]

  • Jeff Merkley: Supporting the Right to a Private Ballot (Except for Working Men and Women)

    Posted on Sep 22, 2008 by Oregonians for Employee Freedom

    There’s an interesting post about the Employee Free Choice Act on American Thinker that was just posted today. In it, we are reminded that “According to Big Labor’s logic, employees can only have a “free choice” when union officials stand over them and pressure them to sign the cards.   Employees who have been subjected to […]

  • Lunsford Tries to Explain His Support for the EFCA; He Fails

    Posted on by Kentuckians for Employee Freedom

    As labor unions intensify their efforts to try to elect their crony, Bruce Lunsford shows that he either doesn’t understand what the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) really is or he is intentionally lying to Kentucky workers about what the EFCA would really do. In fact, his latest statement confirms that he is indeed supportive […]

  • Al Franken: Live From Minnesota, It’s Death to Democracy

    Posted on by Minnesotans for Employee Freedom

    [youtube][/youtube] It’s getting stranger and stranger to chronicle our dealings with Al Franken.  One minute, according to Politico, he’s back writing skits for Saturday Night Live attacking John McCain; the next, he’s ducking us, or having his handlers run interference, on his support for EFCA and Death to Democracy. Then again, maybe the Grim Reaper stalking […]

    Posted on Sep 19, 2008 by Coloradans for Employee Freedom

    Popular talk show host Mike Rosen of Denver’s 850 KOA has done an excellent job informing his audience on the Employee Free Choice Act this election cycle.  In Colorado, where 18 separate ballot issues including 5 labor-related initiatives have been clogging up the airwaves, Rosen has continued to emphasize the importance of this federal issue above all others.   Recently he […]

  • Musgrove Makes A Talkradio Blunder

    Posted on by Mississippians for Employee Freedom

    Listen to the Musgrove Blunder!!! U.S. Senate candidate Ronnie Musgrove is openly flouting Mississippi’s right to work principles by supporting a bill that would strip workers of their fundamental right to a private ballot vote on the job. Musgrove has publicly endorsed the deceptively-named Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) that can force more workers into […]
