    Chance for the Union to get an even chance. I think that the House will pass it and then it gets stuck.

    “This bill amends the National Labor Relations Act and related labor laws to extend protections to union workers. Specifically, it

    • revises the definition of "employee" and "supervisor" to prevent employers from classifying employees as exempt from labor law protections,
    • expands unfair labor practices to include prohibitions against replacement of or discrimination against workers who participate in strikes,
    • makes it an unfair labor practice to require or coerce employees to attend employer meetings designed to discourage union membership,
    • permits workers to participate in collective or class action litigation,
    • allows injunctions against employers engaging in unfair labor practices involving discharge or serious economic harm to an employee,
    • expands penalties for labor law violations, including interference with the National Labor Relations Board or causing serious economic harm to an employee, and
    • allows any person to bring a civil action for harm caused by labor law violations or unfair labor practices.”

    It probably won’t even pass the house with how uncoordinated the Democrats are

    Most of our union members seem to vote for union busting politicians.

    I wouldn’t be Trump 2020 guy if the loonie lefty’s didn’t want to outlaw my hard earned awesome private health insurance and equally distribute it to bums. Or gouge my 401k to send teenagers to college for free to study lesbian dance theory.

    Are you referring to your union designed and negotiated Taft-Hartley non profit (sounds alot like Socialism) TeamCare plan?

    I'm sure that's under no jeopardy with another unfettered 4 year term for his majesty the "stable genius."

    You know what Union members are concerned with more ?


    It's whether or not....

    The monetary company contribution, would go in their pocket.

    Interesting its brought up in an election year when they know it does not stand a chance in the Senate.
    At least they call tell workers they are fighting for them and the mean Republicans do not care.

    Still plenty of time for the republicans to jump on the labor wagon and use it to their advantage. Of course how would they explain it to their corporate donors.

    People don't want to join unions anymore. They want the government to hand them everything now.

    Here's another example of why the political party system needs to be dissolved. Didn't take long for this to devolve into bickering about what side's doing what.

    What happens after the political parties are dissolved?

    Then everybody will have to run on their individual merit. There would be no designated "teams". And no straight-party ticketing. God forbid people would have to put constructive thought into their voting decisions.

    A 'none of the above' option on the ballot would be a good start.

    Ah. Like how I'm probably not filling in the Presidential bubble on my ballot this year.

    Sounds good, but practical for voters? I dunno. Hard enough to put in the research for all of the relatively unknown state and local level Democratic or Republican candidates already.
