  • Mark Udall’s Opponent Bob Schaffer Weighs in on EFCA

    Posted on Sep 11, 2008 by Coloradans for Employee Freedom

    YouTube has provided a forum and an excellent study in contrasts for the Employee Free Choice Act.  Where Mark Udall ignores the fact that the Employee Free Choice Act will remove the private ballot from union elections, his opponent Bob Schaffer makes it clear that he is in favor of private ballots for workers who […]

  • Viva la Secret Ballot!

    Posted on by LaborPains.org Team

    This is all preliminary, mostly because I made the mistake of taking German instead of Spanish in high school, but if Google Translator is correct, it appears the Mexican Supreme Court  has ruled that secret ballots are necessary in union elections. As you might recall, Rep. George Miller and a number of other Democrats in […]

  • The Company Lunsford Keeps

    Posted on Sep 09, 2008 by Kentuckians for Employee Freedom

    They say you can judge a man’s character by the company he keeps. This rings true when two of Bruce Lunsford’s buddies, including Kentucky union boss Bill Londrigan, are caught on tape with some not-so-nice things to say to a camera crew filming in a public area.

  • A simple “No” would have sufficed

    Posted on by LaborPains.org Team

    I thought Mark Udall was a good guy. I thought he might actually listen to his conscience. I was wrong. I say this because I put a question to Udall on YouTube’s YouChoose08 spotlight. Despite his clear skepticism regarding the deceptively-named Employee Free Choice Act, he refused to pledge to support employees’ right to a […]

  • Card check is a basic “human right”?

    Posted on Sep 08, 2008 by Mainers for Employee Freedom

    Stalin, Mao, Hussein, Castro. When you think about these 4 men you think of the horrible atrocities and total disregard for human rights they committed. They had no regard for human life or the suffering of their fellow countrymen. They put their subjects to work in prison camps for days with little to no food. […]

  • Senator Sununu Opposes EFCA

    Posted on by Granite Staters for Employee Freedom

    In stark contrast to his democratic opponent, New Hampshire’s Senator Sununu sees EFCA for what it is: an attempt by unions with sagging membership to intimidate, harass, and coerce employees into joining a union.  Senator Sununu has the clarity to see the issue at its core stating: The so-called “Employee Free Choice Act” is anything but. […]

  • KY Democratic Delegates Forced to Sign EFCA Petition

    Posted on by Kentuckians for Employee Freedom

    Sounds like the union bosses are already using their force to pass the deceptively-named Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). At the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Kentucky union leaders met with union endorsed candidates to discuss their issues, one of which was how they are going to try to dupe the public into thinking the […]

  • Lunsford’s labor buddies screen questions about EFCA

    Posted on by Kentuckians for Employee Freedom

    Watch this clip as Bruce Lunsford’s labor buddies screen questions about EFCA and refuse to allow the cameras to get near Bruce.  Don’t we want a U.S. Senator who will answer any questions posed to them by concerned citizens?  Apparently Bruce and his cronies only allow certain screened questions to be asked of him.  Bruce, […]
