Join the Fight Against Union Corruption

Dear Friends:

Every so often, Congress considers bills that are so dangerous - so much of a threat to the fabric of our democracy - that we have no choice but to stand up and fight.

Right now, we are faced with such an issue: organized labor's proposal to kill the secret ballot in Union organizing elections.

As the Wall Street Journal reports, we are prepared to spend whatever it takes to defeat this Big Labor power grab:

"...the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said it will spend about $10 million in the coming months to fight legislation that would allow workers to organize without a secret ballot vote...Randel Johnson, vice president for labor, immigration and employee benefits at the Chamber, said defeating the measure was the lobby group's top priority in the coming session of Congress, and he described the coming fight in Congress over the issue as a "firestorm bordering on Armageddon."

If this bill passes, it will result in push-button unionism and effectively gag employers and anti-union workers. It would also result in panels of government arbitrators creating labor contracts and work rules governing every aspect of the workplace.

We need your help - and there are several ways you can take action today:

Sign the Petition to Save the Secret Ballot.

Vote in our Online Poll to Share Your Views on this Issue.
Our leaders in Washington need to work to fix the economy first - not pass dangerous laws that do little more than cost American jobs and lead to higher prices for American consumers.

Take action today to make sure the unions don't win this battle.

Senior Vice President and National Political Director
