Republican Traitors Fail Again – Forced Unionism Did Not Pass

By: AJ at

Union bosses, through their cohorts in Congress, want to force airline and railway workers into unions. Luckily their amendment to the FAA bill (HR 658) failed to pass in the House on Friday by a 220 to 206 vote.

Every Democrat voted for the LaTourette/Costello amendment; no surprise there. However, 16 Republican Congressmen voted for the amendment. These Republicans stand against freedom and they stand with the fat-cat union bosses who want to eliminate freedom and choice for American workers.

Currently, American workers enjoy the freedom to form a union or join a union – it’s their choice. Democrats and these 16 Republicans want to take away their right to choose and force them to be in a union if they want the job.

The fight isn’t over though; the Senate and House versions of the FAA bill (HR 658) still need to be reconciled during conference committee. It’s crucial that Sec. 903 of the House bill, HR 658, remain in tact in order to prevent forced unionization.

Please contact Speaker John Boehner at (202) 225-0600 or send him an email and contact Majority Leader Eric Cantor at (202) 225-4000 or send him an email to tell them to repeal the Obama NMB’s union certification election rule change by preserving Sec. 903 of the House bill, HR 658.

Tremendous thanks goes to Mark Mix of The National Right to Work Committee for keeping us informed about these legislative issues.
