“I think you’ll see [Card Check] passed in the first quarter of 2010.”
Straight from the union bosses: The clock is ticking.
And in order to pass the Card Check Forced Unionism bill in the next two months, Richard Trumka has a plan:
“It’ll take some creative doing. But we’ll do it.”To be clear, when Richard Trumka says “creative doing,” he’s really talking about sleazy backroom deals –- just like the ones union bosses cut on “Obamacare.”
As you know, should “Card Check” pass, workers would no longer be able to vote for or against union boss “representation” in a secret ballot election.
And, of course, Big Labor has yet another ticking time bomb hidden in the “Card Check” legislation.
If the union bosses can drag out negotiations with an employer past 90 days by making outrageous demands, then Obama Administration bureaucrats will have the power to use this so-called “problem” as an excuse to write a new labor contract and FORCE its terms and conditions of employment upon those workers!
So, you see, Big Labor wants to strip workers not only of the right to a secret ballot but also of the right to vote on their own contracts as well!
But that’s not all.
Word is, several of Big Labor’s closest allies in the U.S. Senate have been working feverishly to craft a so-called “Plan B” version -- even acting like they might drop the “Card Check” provision entirely from the bill.
Of course, this bill is dangerous with or without “Card Check.”
But you and I both know whatever “final” bill Big Labor’s allies stamp their approval on WILL NOT be some watered-down “compromise” bill that causes no harm to American workers and our fragile economy.
The fact is, should ANY version of “Card Check” pass, it would:
That’s why it’s vital you act IMMEDIATELY.
You see, over the past few months, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has used every trick in the book to get the “Card Check” Bill out of the media spotlight.
Senator Reid and the rest of Big Labor’s allies in Washington know that the only way to get the “Card Check” Bill passed is to downplay its importance and then ram the Bill into law before you and I even know what’s happening.
But don’t be fooled.
The truth is, after visiting the White House 22 times to lobby for the “Card Check” Bill this year, SEIU boss Andy Stern isn’t about to give up the fight.
In fact, Stern and the rest of the national union bosses are only beginning to turn up the heat.
The good news is, we have been making headway.
There are several Democrat Senators who are really feeling the heat.
They’re waffling. They’re on the fence. And at this point, their votes could go either way.
With Scott Brown’s election, the Republican Senate minority theoretically has 41 votes needed to block these union boss power grabs, but you and I both know that there are a handful of union-boss apologists in the Republican Caucus as well.
It would only take one of these Republicans to give in to election year pressure or fall prey to a phony “compromise” on card check – and Big Labor could be victorious.
Big Labor’s allies might try to catch us sleeping by ramming through Congress a dangerous “Plan B” version of the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.
But don’t be fooled – the new version is no “improvement.”
It’s every bit as destructive to individual freedom and the economy.
So you and I need to let them know we’re onto their scheme.
The good news is, your Committee has a plan that can stop them dead in their tracks.
First, I’d like expand our hard-hitting TV ads against all the waffling union-boss apologists in the Senate -- along with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
As you know, your National Right to Work Committee has been targeting a handful of waffling Big Labor Democrats with hard-hitting TV ads for the past several weeks.
They’ve proven to be very successful.
But with the “Card Check” fight coming to a head, it’s never been more important I have the resources to expand this effort NOW.
And second, right before the vote on the “Card Check” Bill, my goal is to crank-up the Committee’s phone bank system and urge EVERY Right to Work supporter in our targeted states to call their U.S. Senators.
That will unleash a torrent of calls into targeted Big Labor Democrats’ offices -- unlike anything they’ve ever seen.
But the truth is, we may be running out of time.
And none of this is cheap.
I want you to know I am counting on your support.
This fight is going to come down to the wire. We can’t leave anything to chance.
If we have the resources to expand our TV ad program and turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators with our phone banks, I’m confident we can win.
But we don’t have much time.
It’s vital you act TODAY!
P.S. With Big Labor’s allies determined to make good on their promise before the end of the year, the “Card Check” Bill or similar legislation could come to the floor any day.
That’s why it’s vital you sign this petition to your U.S. Senators urging them to vote AGAINST the union bosses’ Card Check Forced Unionism Bill or similar union boss power grabs on every vote.
