Today, I saw a TV interview that has confirmed what I’ve been saying for years (see the long paragraph in the middle). The UAW has driven the auto industry down into a disastrous spiral. Watch theses videos. The first is an ad put out by the Employee Freedom Action Committee (EFAC), and the second is an interview with EFAC representative Rick Berman (done by Neil Cavuto):
Alright, so those videos discuss the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), a bill that would get rid of the secret ballot for unions (when workers vote to either unionize or not unionize) and would force workers to pay union dues even if they don’t want to.
There are Democrats in Congress who are supporting this, but the interesting thing is, they recently voted to keep Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) in their caucus, by … you guessed it … a secret ballot.
Now, in that second video, you saw the insanely huge contract that the UAW has forced the Big 3 auto companies into. Yes, I said forced. As I’ve explained before, the UAW has bullied the Big 3 into signing those insane contracts. Because if the auto companies don’t sign, the union will go on strike, and the company will suffer and lose money. Unfortunately, the companies give in, because their executives don’t want their companies to fail. If I were the auto executives, I’d say, “Go on strike,” and when the company didn’t have enough money to stay open, I’d fire those union workers. Then see if the UAW is so stubborn. I guarantee they wouldn’t be.
There was a time and place for unions, but, for the most part, that time and place is all gone now.
Stand up AGAINST the EFCA and stand WITH the EFAC. Fight the union bosses. Fight for workers RIGHTS (the RIGHT to a secret ballot, which Americans hold so dear).
End this union bullying of the Big 3.
