A gigantic dinosaur on Capitol Hill to ask "why union dinosaurs are trying to make secret ballot elections go extinct?" From Union Facts here;
We want to get the word out that union leaders are trying to eliminate the secret ballot in the workplace by getting Congress to pass the Employee Free Choice Act. This would allow union activists to organize using a petition-like process called "card check," which involves approaching an employee and asking him to sign a card asking for a union -- in public. This process is well-documented as prone to coercion and intimidation.
Just yesterday, Sen. Kennedy ripped up our ad in front of an AFSCME rally. From the New York Sun:
"A Democratic colleague, Senator Kennedy of Massachusetts, was much more demonstrative at a Capitol Hill rally yesterday. Holding up a copy of the ad, he shouted, "This is what I say to them" before tearing the newspaper in half and throwing it to the ground."
