Testimonials

I just wanted to take a moment and personally thank you for lending us your expertise and hard work in helping [Company Name Withheld] remain Union-Free. You were instrumental in helping me stop the Teamsters, who had been previously batting 1000 against [Company Name]; winning several elections against this past year. With a resounding 50% margin of victory, I believe we sent them a clear message that we intend to remain union-free.

Breaking: Member Pearce Letter to Hayes Reports Hayes is Considering Resigning

In response to a letter from Board Member Brian Hayes to Congressman John Kline (which we published last week) Board Chairman Pearce published a scathing reply today. In Pearce’s reply he responded to the issues Hayes brought up in his letter. In addition he illuminated much of the “behind the scenes” negotiations/strong-arming going on between the majority members and Member Hayes. It is a fascinating read, but the most important news is that clearly member Hayes is considering resigning (in fact according to Pearce he has threatened to do it on multiple occasions prior to last week) in order to stop the NLRB “ambush election” rulemaking from going into effect. If true it looks like we may be down to a 2-member Board as early as next week. We will keep you posted on developments.

    A man of principle! Good for Brian Hayes!

  • Mary

    Amen! We need more like him!! Thanks Mr. Hayes for standing up for what you believe instead of being a bobble head!

  • If the union is denied payroll deduction for their dues, they will sell the membership down the river. I am familiar with a case in which they gave up the employees sick leave and vacation in order to get payroll deduction. They were told they could come on payday and collect them in the lobby. They did not want to do that. The employees voted them out the next year.
