With a simple change to a rule, Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) will gut right-to-work laws.
The board is considering requiring non-union workers who work at unionized companies – something that can only happen in the 25 “right-to-work” states – to pay fees to unions in order to file workplace grievances.
Unions have full control of grievances in workplaces. This will give them too much power over non-union workers.
Mark Mix of the National Right-to-Work Committee said “History has shown that union officials all too often initiate on-the-job discrimination, which forces a worker into the grievance process the union bosses control, in order to punish him or her for not joining the union in the first place,” he said.
The fees could exceed the union dues.
Where unions don’t represent workers in right-to-work states, salaries are lower but unemployment is also much lower.
Prior to the formation of right-to-work states, unions have mandated that workers join the union and pay dues depriving them of a fundamental right to not join.
Greg Mourad of the National Right to Work Committee said, “This proposed action by Obama’s Big Labor NLRB is a direct assault on a worker’s fundamental First Amendment right to freedom of association.”
Congress is considering the issue and is being asked to stop the NLRB.
