Why would anyone want to take away a worker’s right to a secret ballot regarding unionization? I am a small-business owner who knows that good employees are the backbone of any successful company. The old “us against them” mentality went out decades ago.
Unions have the “closed shop” legislation locking in membership, as well as “forced dues,” regardless of workers’ beliefs and wishes.
I have been involved in two unionization attempts. Cards were easily signed during home visits and a big free drink session at the corner tavern. When the secret ballot voting was completed, the union was rejected on both occasions. Each employee spoke without fear of intimidation.
I suggest we support our free enterprise system by all pulling in the same direction before there is nothing left to unionize. We must save the secret ballot for our workers.
