WFI Calls On President Obama To Stand With Workers & Stop “Ambush” Elections
Union Bosses Don’t Need Another Handout From Executive Branch
Washington, D.C. (March 19, 2015) – The Workforce Fairness Institute today called on President Obama to sign the joint resolution (S.J. Res. 8) which would protect American workers from Big Labor’s “ambush” elections. With today’s 233-181 vote in the U.S. House of Representatives, this resolution disapproving of the controversial National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule has now been passed by Congress. The Senate approved the measure 53-45 earlier this month.
“Congress has acted and the elected representatives of the American people have spoken,” said Fred Wszolek, spokesperson for the Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI). “The message is clear: the National Labor Relations Board must no longer be allowed to trample on the rights of workers and small businesses. The Board wants to prevent employers from being able to make their case in union elections and block employees from hearing all the facts. When Big Labor forces an ‘ambush’ election, everyone loses except the union bosses. That’s precisely with whom President Obama and his NLRB have sided throughout the duration of this administration, but it is now time to stop these job-killing policies and stand with workers.”
