Just so there is no mistaking who is for and who is against the right to have a union. Not one Republican voted for this. There are no “moderate Republicans” – not when it counts.
Senate Republicans block union bill,
Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked a bill that would allow labor unions to organize workplaces without a secret ballot election.
… The outcome was not a surprise, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., saying for months that he would stop the legislation in the Senate. The White House also made clear that if the bill passed Congress it would be vetoed.
…The GOP also plans to use the vote for election-year campaigning, with corporations and businesses being the top opponents to the legislation. The National Republican Senatorial Committee sent out a fundraising video last week asking people to contribute in order to help stop the Employee Free Choice Act.
… The bill would require employers to recognize unions after being presented union cards signed by a majority of eligible workers on their payrolls.
