Re: “Mailbag

Re: Tucson Weekly's "no recommendation" on Proposition 113: Below is additional information from Media Matters (http://mediamatters.org/research/201001290…)
on the so-called federal "card-check" legislation. This may encourage voters to vote "no"on 113 because of the continued potential for abuse of secret ballots by employers:

'Rep. George Miller (D-CA), chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor and a leading proponent of the Employee Free Choice Act, has addressed the "myth" that the bill eliminates the secret ballot:

MYTH: The Employee Free Choice Act abolishes the National Labor Relations Board's "secret ballot" election process.

FACT: The Employee Free Choice Act does not abolish the National Labor Relations Board election process. That process would still be available under the Employee Free Choice Act. The legislation simply enables workers to also form a union through majority sign-up if a majority prefers that method to the NLRB election process. Under current law, workers may only use the majority sign-up process if their employer agrees. The Employee Free Choice Act would make that choice -- whether to use the NLRB election process or majority sign-up -- a majority choice of the employees, not the employer."
