Help support fairer union elections

The National Labor Relations Board is thinking of doing something nice for organized labor. They want to change the rules for elections to join a union.

The NLRB recently put out a proposal to make union elections a lot fairer. Their plan would save money and time and avoid long, lawyer-driven battles with employers.

This is a good thing. Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa strongly supports the proposal. He makes a good point:
If corporations can join together to hire lobbyists without being challenged by abusive lawsuits, then workers should also have that right.
You can help this effort by sending a letter to the NLRB supporting their proposal, you can send a letter to the NLRB supporting their proposal. It's easy, just click here.
