Many Right to Work supporters and activist are wondering what will happen now that Big Labor re-elected Barack Obama and held the majority in the U.S. Senate.
Well I can tell you, the union bosses are already scheming to seize more power.
In a revealing interview just before Election Day, top AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka promised that Big Labor’s Card Check Forced Unionism Bill will be a top priority in Barack Obama’s second term.
As you may remember, the Card Check Bill would STRIP workers of the right to a secret ballot in union elections, allowing union thugs to intimidate workers one-on-one — or three-on-one — into signing so-called “union authorization cards.”
But Trumka didn’t stop there.
He even pledged to unleash Big Labor’s forced-dues-backed political war chest to oust members of Congress in 2014 who won’t do the union bosses’ bidding.
Not only that, the union bosses will scheme to kill pro-worker freedom legislation like the National Right to Work Act and Freedom From Union Violence Act.
And then there’s “Plan B.”
In his first term, Obama wasn’t shy about paying back his union-boss benefactors through the National Labor Relations Board.
Now that Obama is no longer accountable to the voters, we must be on high alert for an all-out assault on worker freedom through the federal bureaucracy.
The good news is, Right to Work remains popular.
This week, voters in Michigan — long considered a stronghold for Big Labor — rejected the union bosses’ ballot questions to expand their power over workers and taxpayers.
And in January when the new Congress is seated, the ranks of U.S Senators who signed a Committee survey 100% in favor of Right to Work will increase.
But we knew the union bosses would do whatever it took to re-elect Obama. And they’re already demanding payback.
We must be ready to fight back.
