Resignation could thwart labor thug election rule
The backlash to Hayes’s threat from unions has been intense, as a long-held goal of simplifying and speeding up union elections would be stopped in its tracks by the maneuver.
“We think it’s really terrible to shut down a government agency over ideology,” Peter Colavito, director of government relations for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), told The Hill. “I’m really struggling to find precedent for this. It’s really an outrage as an attack on workers’ rights.”It is ridiculous to suggest that keeping the status quo is an attack on "worker rights." There has always had the right to a fair election and what the proposed rule would o is provide elections that are unfair to management and the companies shareholders.
