Dear Representative Kline,

On behalf of more than 1.8 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I commend you for introducing the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, H.R. 3094. Your bill ensures fair and impartial union election procedures and eliminates the specter of “quickie” or “snap” elections, reminding the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that any credible protection of workers’ rights includes the right to choose not to unionize as well.

Under current law, if a union wants to attempt to organize employees for the purposes of collective bargaining, they must hold an election refereed by the NLRB. Ninety-five percent of union elections are held within 56 days after a petition is filed, an eminently reasonable timeframe. Nevertheless, in June the Board proposed changes to current procedures that would accelerate that process, move many important administrative issues and legal challenges (including questions like “who is allowed to vote?”) to after the election, and shorten the time from petition to election to as little as 10 days.

Tell the NLRB that "quickie" elections are a bad idea!

Status:

Referred to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
