Labor union lock on Oregon government goes too far

The Oregon House passed legislation on Monday that would deprive workers of secret ballot elections in public sector union organizing campaigns. Instead of an election, the union would be certified based on a certain number of so-called "cards" signed by employees.

Just yesterday, the NLRB ruled against the Portland-area SEIU, banning the union from using the anti-democratic "card check" practice in the Pacific Northwest for 6 months on account of repeated, widespread, rampant abuses.

Making secret balloting illegal in organizing elections is a legislative priority for Big Labor in the states, like Oregon, and in Washington, D.C., where it is gaining ground in the Democrat-controlled Congress. This 30-second video explains the way the new system would work.
