Testimonials

Although I do not own a company any more, and never did have more than four employees, I never had a good interaction with a union. I appreciate this site because it's good to know that business owners can get help in dealing with unions. I believe that in spite of some good results from union efforts in our nation's history, the bottom lien score for unions overall are about a minus-5 on a scale of minus 10 to plus 10. If I had a large company here in Florida, I'd be watching out for unions very much, because our Governor is on the make for a presidential bid, and he's a RINO. Even though our state is RTW, that can change. It is good to have a resource like the Labor Relations Institute for companies that need help, especially when our so-called President has never seen a law he won't break for his own advantage.

Employee Free Choice Act Foot Soldiers

Big Labor is gearing up their push to make the EFCA the law of the land. They are beginning the campaign of talking to their constituency by “grass roots” efforts and direct mail. There are a few organizations, such as the national Chamber of Commerce and a few pro-business groups attempting to put up a fight. However, Big Labor definitely has the lion’s share of cash and foot soldiers on their side.

“The AFL-CIO announced Tuesday that it was starting “a ramped-up campaign” to make Mr. Obama’s campaign pledge a political reality, beginning this week with a massive mailing to more than 600,000 swing union households in the battleground states of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“That will be followed by a ‘massive campaign’ among 13 million union voters in August to promote Mr. Obama and specifically highlight his support for the labor law reform bill known as “card check.” It is estimated that organized labor will spend upward of $300 million in this year’s presidential and congressional elections – much of it promoting the card-check bill and tying it to its Democratic supporters.”

If you’re a business owner, you can donate to the Chamber and one or more of the advocacy groups. If you try to mobilize the only “foot soldiers” in your sphere of influence, as WalMart has valiantly attempted to do, you could become the next target for Big Labor.

The OTHER thing you can do is to start now to prepare your company for the possible onslaught. With some proper communication and management training, it is possible to make your company a “hard target” from the union point of view. There are experts (we among them) who can help you. Our EFCA Tool Kit is a potent tool for your arsenal in the defense against Big Labor.
