    The GOP are really scumbags in that article from the NY times.

    Corporations, supported largely by Republicans, have denounced the proposed changes, which they say will deny businesses enough time to make their case against unionization.

    There should NEVER be a case against unization, IMO......If ya have the right, ya have the right....and to make a case against that right is something....which the only word I can come up with...is evil.

    This should never happen..This should be considered somehow illegal...all the seats should be filled........This is wrong!!!!! If he leaves the 2 dems should be able to pass as many things as they would like....That would solve the problem quickly. this is an abuse of rights...The Churches should rise up and stand for these rights too.

    If Hayes leaves, only two members — both Democrats — would remain instead of the five members it's supposed to have. Congressional Republicans have blocked President Barack Obama from filling the other two vacancies at the board.

    Under current rules, union elections typically take place within 45-60 days after a union gathers enough signatures to file a petition. Republicans contend the new rules could shorten that time to as little as 10 days.

    Hey this changed in the last few hours...Check it out...the difference from my last post(above this) and now....The guy didn't quit...and the vote went through! this may be good...almost like card check.

    The board's Democratic majority voted 2-1 in favor of a revised proposal that could give organized labor a boost in organizing new members at companies that have long opposed unions.

    Business groups have strongly opposed the new rules, saying they amount to ambush elections that don't give company managers enough time to talk to employees. Unions claim the rules help them level the playing field with companies that abuse the legal process to stave off union elections.

    The vote came after the board's lone Republican member, Brian Hayes, didn't make good on threats to resign, a move that would have rendered the agency powerless to act.

    Hayes said he decided not to quit, even though he strongly opposes the rules and believes Democratic members are not giving him enough time to consider them.
