AFSCME notes Oregon's anti-democracy law

Union boss nods to new first-in-the-nation rule


AFSCME President Gerald W. McEntee discusses the U.S. Senate vote on the anti-democracy bill that would deny workers a secret ballot election in unionization campaigns, and substitute intimidation instead. A total of 51 senators voted for the measure, but a minority of pro-worker legislators were able to block a vote on the bill. Near the end, he boasts that Oregon recently enacted the law at the state level.
