Among the well-wishers for President Obama’s triumphant re-election is Chicago pal and domestic terrorist-turned-professor Bill Ayers. Writing on the website good.is, Ayers writes: “Dear President Obama: Congratulations! ... more

Is it ever enough? That’s what citizens should be asking in Newark, where the teachers are claiming they are subject to “indentured servitude” for being forced to consider an “inhumane” collective bargaining agreement that many consider very union friendly. ... more

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is accustomed to a “by any means necessary” approach. That’s how they’ve tackled issues like “ambush” or “quickie” elections, which was since overturned by a federal judge and the formation of micro-unions, which is operable today. So, is it really surprising that the NLRB’s lead attorney is in hot water over ethics violations? ... more

After a few weeks of recess, Members of Congress will return this week to address a number of issues, including the budget, transportation bill and Buffet Rule. One of the issues that will likely come to a vote in the U.S. Senate in the coming weeks is a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act, which seeks to reverse a recent regulation promulgated by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). ... more

Brett McMahon - Wed Mar 28

With Santorum’s win this last weekend in Louisiana, he continues a trend of faring better than Romney in Right-to-Work (RTW) states. Many of these RTW states are located in the south and have historically been states that haven’t been impacted by labor unions such as those in the northeast and midwest. ... more

Now is the time for all good tea partiers to come to the aid of Wisconsin. Fiscally conservative leaders in the Badger State are under coordinated siege from Big Labor, the White House, the liberal media and the judiciary. The yearlong campaign of union thuggery, family harassment and intimidation of Republican donors and businesses is about to escalate even further. This is the price the Right pays for doing the right thing. ... more

According to Mayan calendars and some scholars, 2012 is supposed to be the end of an age and resulting in cataclysmic and transformative events. While the winds and storms are raging and the earth is moving and shaking both literally and figuratively, most everyone will agree the end of the world is not likely, though 2012 is shaping up to potentially bring to end the area of Big Labor as we know it. ... more

The White House fairy tale about the Happily Ever After Auto Bailout is missing a crucial, bloody page. While President Obama bragged about "standing by American workers" at a rowdy United Auto Workers meeting Tuesday, he failed to acknowledge how the Chicago-style deal threw tens of thousands of nonunion autoworkers under the bus. ... more

In an era when Americans simply want the government to leave them alone and focus on getting the economy going so businesses can create jobs, the message seems completely lost on Big Labor’s agents at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). ... more

Toward the end of last year, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) finalized a rule for “quickie” or “ambush” elections. The final rule significantly diminishes the amount of time for workplace elections and threatens the unionization of workplaces without labor having secured the employees’ un-coerced majority support. ... more

As President Obama steps before the nation tonight, he will deliver a report to the American people on the condition of our country. The speech is the equivalent of Super Bowl Sunday for politicos in Washington, D.C. Commentators, policy experts, lobbyists, flacks and many others will be combing through the speech seeking mentions that affect clients or favored issues. ... more

The big labor union that represents government workers is spending $1 million on a television ad in Florida to attack Mitt Romney’s record as a businessman. It's an ad clearly designed to aid Newt Gingrich. ... more

New York City government schools have had some pretty outrageous policies. Rubber rooms were a great example. They were special places created for teachers accused of crimes, incompetence and the like. Due to state tenure laws, it actually cost less to house the failed teachers in a location where they couldn’t inflict more damage on students, than to go through the lengthy and expensive legal process necessary to fire them. ... more
