    Default GOP Bill Seeks T Reinstate Stricter Rule On Unionization Votes

    US Bill Seeks To Reinstate Stricter Rule On Unionization Votes
    US Bill Seeks To Reinstate Stricter Rule On Unionization Votes

    The provision, included in a bill to authorize the Federal Aviation Administration, has sparked a lobbying blitz by major airlines and labor unions on Capitol Hill. Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) and FedEx Corp. (FDX) are among those pushing the proposal, while unions such as the AFL-CIO and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are fighting it.

    The provision, backed by House Transportation Committee Chairman John Mica ( R., Fla.), targets a rule change by the National Mediation Board last year that made it easier for airline and rail employees to form unions. Under the new rule, a union can be created if a majority of the votes cast are in favor of collective bargaining. Previously, it took a majority of a company's entire workforce, which meant that employees absent during the vote were tallied as " no" votes.

    The House bill would repeal the change. A full House vote could occur as early as Thursday; a Senate-passed version of the bill doesn't include the provision.


    I won't be voting GOP anytime soon..Maybe not in this lifetime.. If they are all there is I will not vote at all.

    Here's a Republican on your side, Slave. On the same issue.

    Republican Breaks Ranks on Union Issue

    Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Ohio) will sponsor an amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization bill that, if passed, would strike back at his party’s efforts to limit union organizing at airline and railway companies.

    "...Union leaders heaped praise on LaTourette for breaking with his party.

    "...“Mr. LaTourette has a long record of supporting collective bargaining across the economy,” Wytkind said. “It’s not unusual for someone like him to take the lead on something like this.”"

    I think you might see more republicans starting to side with labor not because they favor it but because they are more afraid of loosing their jobs at re-election..More and more of the public is siding with the public sector workers as they look around and see that these people are their neighbors and friends. IMO Gov Walker in a way did what the higher ups in the union couldn't do..Woke the working class up..
