2010: A Disastrous Year For Unions

Election Year Was Disastrous For Unions
As the year ends, many people are looking back on 2010 as a historic time of political upheaval. But one of the year’s biggest political developments has been mostly overlooked.

If voters sent one message loudly and consistently, it is this: They do not like unions. The American electorate availed itself of almost every chance to take a whack at organized labor.

Big Labor has been pushing hard in Congress to pass Card Check, which eliminates secret ballots in workplace elections, allowing organizers to identify and bully workers opposed to unionizing. But voters in four states ratified anti-Card Check initiatives requiring secret ballots in workplace elections.

With public-sector union pension plans around the country sinking under trillions of dollars of debt, six states, Alabama, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin, elected governors who promised to transfer state employees from costly defined-benefit pension plans to 401(k) contribution plans.

Ohio's incoming Republican Gov. John Kaisch is talking about eliminating laws dictating union-scale wages for public projects and dropping certain bargaining privileges for police and firefighter unions. In Wisconsin, Gov.-elect Scott Walker recently said he is considering abolishing public-sector unions.

California voters also showed they were not pleased with private-sector unions. At 12% unemployment, local unions killed a deal to build a billion-dollar development in Southern California that would have created 12,000 jobs.

In New Jersey, voters approved only 41 percent of the 538 proposed budgets in the state’s annual school election. Governor Chris Christie has introduced a property tax tool kit aimed at reducing property taxes but the Democratically controlled Assembly and Senate have so far failed to act.

Despite the clear messages being sent, unions are more influential than ever with the apparently oblivious Democrats in Washington. Liberal political appointees on the National Labor Relations Board recently issued a decision allowing unions to forgo secret ballots in certain circumstances, and recently published a rule mandating the majority of private employers to post the rights of workers to organize.

President Obama Shows His Affection
For Unions With AFL/CIO
President Richard Trumka
Obama has rolled back transparency requirements for unions and encouraged project labor agreements on $140 billion in stimulus projects. In Congress, the $813 billion stimulus bill and subsequent $26 billion teacher unions bailout kept public-sector unions flush even as the private sector was drowning.

These measures are Obama’s payback to organized labor, which spent more than $200 million trying to protect Democrats in the midterm election. But how many more elections do Democrats and unions have to lose before they start heeding the will of the people?

Christie Planning To Steal Jobs From Other States While Fixing States Fiscal Woes

Trenton's Top Two Democrats 
Senate President Stephen Sweeney and
Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver
While they are largely responsible for the fiscal mess the state finds itself in, the States Democratic Controlled Assembly and Senate, who are all up for election in November 2011, have shown little cooperation with the Governor in fixing the States fiscal house.
