Make that three previous votes; the union won one election, by stuffing the ballot box.
Alabama workers are being forced to take a fifth vote to kick out a local UAW chapter despite giving the union the boot in February.
A regional agent for the National Labor Relations Board, which oversees union elections and decertifications, found merit to UAW objections to the February vote and scheduled another vote in May. This will be the fifth vote the workers have had on the issue in the past two years, according to the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, which has assisted anti-union workers.
“It shouldn’t take five votes to get rid of a union that has clearly overstayed its welcome,” Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Foundation, said in a statement. “The NLRB has stacked the deck against workers seeking to remove unwanted unions, allowing union officials to throw out results that don’t go their way and hold onto power.”
UAW organizers had previously convinced the NLRB to toss losing votes with complaints of management interference. The UAW won the third election held in January 2015. However, that vote was nullified after it was revealed that 148 ballots were counted even though only 139 employees voted.
Local 1990 did not return request for comment.
Well, what further comment is needed?
The UAW is so danged popular that nine people voted twice to keep them around. When are you dumb crackers going to figure out what’s good for you?
Keep voting, rednecks, you just might get it right next time.
If not, the Obama NLRB will let you know.
