NLRB Litigates for Less Freedom

n another demonstration of the overreaching power of the federal government, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is preparing to sue Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Utah to overturn state constitutional amendments. The state amendments exclude card check as an option for employees to use when choosing to unionize.

The states in passing these amendments attempted to ensure the freedom of employees to a secret vote, when choosing to unionize or not. The amendments passed easily: ”Voters passed the amendments requiring elections as ballot initiatives in November, giving 60 percent approval in Utah, 61 percent in Arizona, 79 percent in South Dakota and 86 percent in South Carolina.”
