The beneficiary of this misguided standard is Big Labor bosses who gain a foothold in businesses with micro-unions due to their inability to convince a majority of workers to support the formation of a union. The result will be a proliferation of small unions in workplaces, which dramatically increase an employer’s labor relations costs as the business owner will be required to negotiate and apply multiple collective bargaining agreements. It also increases the likelihood of unrest and workplace disputes as many different unions with differing goals represent different employees all under one roof.

Therefore, the upcoming vote in the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations on the FY 2013 Labor, Health and Human Services Appropriations Bill sends an important message to the government bureaucrats at President Obama’s labor board, but also takes another step toward ending the job-killing micro-unions that threaten employees and employers throughout the nation.
