Trump Administration Puts Support Behind Right-to-Work Laws

Trump Administration Puts Support Behind Right-to-Work Laws

"The Trump administration reaffirmed support for right-to-work laws, days after House Republicans reintroduced a bill that would prevent unions from requiring nonmembers to pay representation fees.

“The president believes in right to work. He wants to give workers and companies the flexibility to do what’s in the best interest for job creators,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said during the Feb. 3 daily news conference. “Obviously the vice president has been a champion of this as well.”

The National Right to Work Act ( H.R. 785), introduced by Reps. Joe Wilson (S.C.) and Steve King (Iowa), would prohibit “union security” clauses in collective bargaining agreements, which require nonunion members who are covered by the agreements to pay representation fees. The bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Robert Pittenger (N.C.) and Jeff Duncan (S.C.), was referred to the Education and the Workforce Committee Feb. 1. Wilson is vice chairman of the committee."

If they really want to create

If they really want to create jobs and allow people to work they should repeal the fair labor standards act and the National Labor relations act. These acts are patently unconstitutional and were passed and anointed by a Democrat Congress and Democrat Supreme Court only after the Democrats took control in the mid 1930s, had the Congress and the Presidency and Roosevelt packed the court with his own appointees. The Constitution never gave the power to Congress to impair the obligation of contracts and specifically prohibited the States from doing so. Right to work laws are unconstitutional in another respect because they are bills of attainder exempting some from their provisions;. If they were so good, why are farmers, family businesses and firms with fewer than a specified number of employees exempt from them? Right to work laws, like the pending replacement of Obamacare will do nothing to stem the power of organized labor and the monopoly of the medical profession.

Will “Right-to-Work” become

Will “Right-to-Work” become Federal law?

February 13, 2017

“According to Danielle Petaja of the firm Saul Ewing, LLP, representatives from Iowa (King-R) and South Carolina (Wilson-R) have introduced into the House a bill called the National Right to Work Act” (H.R. 785). This bill would remove the union security clause from the NLRA and essentially make all states “right-to-work” states.

Good chance to pass?
According to Petaja this legislation has the best chance in decades to pass. Citing growth in jobs in many “right-to-work” states the current administration is in favor of the legislation. Petaja says that the Senate will need 8 Democrats to join the Republicans in order to overcome a filibuster by the Democrats. She quotes White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer who said “The president believes in right to work. He wants to give workers and companies the flexibility to do what’s in the best interest for job creators.””

“Labor unions can do well in right-to-work states”

“I have been a labor union business agent and organizer for the AFL-CIO for eight years. I have worked in both Right to Work states and forced unionism states. We have had higher paying contracts in a Right to Work state than in a forced unionism state. Labor unions can do very well in Right to Work states.”

The inconvenient truth Big

The inconvenient truth Big Labor doesn’t want to share with America
February 15, 2017

“Labor leaders face an inconvenient truth. Despite spending millions of dollars on campaigns like the “Fight for $15 and a Union,” while receiving unprecedented help from a labor-friendly Obama administration, unions have seen little return on investment in their membership rolls.

Take the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the organizer of “$15 and a Union”—the push for a $15 minimum wage and unionized fast-food sector.

According to the SEIU’s most recent filing with the Labor Department, the union spent at least $20 million on the Fight for $15 in 2015. This increases the total to roughly $70 million since the campaign began in 2012.

Yet, despite seven-figure public relations retainers, the SEIU’s membership has dipped in recent years: The SEIU claimed 1,921,786 union members in 2011, the year prior to the start of the Fight for $15—almost 34,000 more employees than it had in 2015. The union’s 2016 filing will likely continue the downward trend.”

“A National Right to Work Act would similarly—albeit less comprehensively—transfer power from labor leaders to blue-collar employees. “

Please contact the offices of Congressman Bruce Poliquin and Senator Susan Collins and ask them to support passing the National Right-To-Work Act in 2017.
The DC telephone switchboard number is: (202) 224-3121.

It's time to end Forced Unionism in all of our USA,
and passing the National RTW Act is the best way to do that.
