On December 2 Georgians will vote in the U.S. Senate election. ACORN is back to work along with the unions and B.O. in Atlanta garnering support for the Democratic candidate.
What's at stake in this Senate election? Secret ballots. Unions want to do away with them. B.O. has pledged to pass the card-check bill allowing workers to form a union simply by collecting a majority of cards signed by workers supporting a union within their workplace. Currently, cards are submitted by workers to request union certification and an election takes place under secret ballot voting. The pending bill (Employee Free Choice Act) will no longer require a secret ballot unless at least 30% of workers call for it.
Union leaders prefer to move away from open elections in which employers and unions compete for worker votes. By eliminating secret ballots "It will allow workers to form a union through majority sign up and card checks and strengthen penalties for those employers who are in violation." -B.O.
Take away secret ballots for unionization? What's next?
