Learn the truth about how and why companies hire union busters and engage in union busting tactics in an effort to destroy union organizing campaigns. Learn more about the billion-dollar union busting industry commonly called "union avoidance" or "union free." Most of all, learn why you shouldn't believe the anti-union hype and hysteria. Your right to form or join a union is protected under U.S. Federal Law. Specifically, Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) states:

“Employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid and protection.”

If you are a worker actively engaged in a union organizing campaign urge your employer not to hire a labor relations "consultant" or a law firm that engages in "union avoidance" or "union free" strategies and tactics. Tell them they could instead use that money to increase your wages, benefits, and working conditions. Tell them that in the United States workers are still free to choose union representation.

Is Bush an "IDIOT"?

Is the President of the United States, George W. Bush, an idiot? Scarborough Country asks the forbidden question. They look at his inability to speak correctly, not at his inability to lead correctly, however. Of course the real question is, is the Republican Party full of idiots because they nominated the sucker, and continue to blindly follow his crap? Is the US full of idiots, because they elected the sucker and have not begun demanding better until recently?
