Union Rights Poster now Mandated in all Businesses

Coming soon to all the businesses near you.

The National Labor Relations Board decided some time back to mandate that most private sector businesses post an informational poster which has been dubbed “the union rights poster.” This poster is supposed to make all employees everywhere aware of their right to unionize. As might be expected business groups challenged this forced intrusion on private sector business in court and on Friday Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson (an Obama appointee with Tester/Baucus approval) struck down the complaint and ruled to allow the forced display of the union rights poster. If you have over two employees you will be required to have this poster in place by April 30, 2012.

Well on the bright side for Democrats at least it may help garner union votes for the Obama-Tester team this November. I guess I was mistaken because here I have thought all along that using ones influence to pander or buy votes from a select group was in fact illegal. Just another in the long list of “accomplishments” from the Obama administration furthering the erosion of our personal freedoms.

  1. Rewarding your union contributors is all this is about. Not about what is good for Montana

    The union has its place in history but society has evolved far beyond any good the union brings to us working stiffs here locally. What have they done for you other than to take your dues?

  2. Unions have created the middle class in the USA. They are the reason the US has the standard of living it does, and built this nation.

    The death of the middle class began on August 5, 1981 when Ronald Reagan fired PATCO. The union organizing of Lech Walesa had far more to do with the fall of the Soviet Union than anything Reagan ever did. People should be reminded that the definition of the word 'asshole' is the hole they buried Reagan in.

    Republicans should rightfully be ashamed of Reagan who actually did far more damage to the nation than other criminal presidents such as Nixon or W.

  3. It is a myth that unions created the middle class.

    At the end of WWII and through the early 1960s, the U.S. and Canada had hardly any competition in world trade as the European and Japanese economies were in poor shape, to say the least, and it would take them the good part of a generation to offer any real competition to the U.S. and Canada.

    Meanwhile, union excesses built up in the U.S. and when imports from Europe and Japan started arriving on our shores, many industries, especially the highly unionized auto industry could no longer compete.

  4. DeCon

    Since you brought up the subject of criminal presidents what do you have to say about Mr. Obama? This guy will unquestionably go down as the worst president in American history.

  5. Really??

    Are you accusing President Obama of a crime??

    I would be really interested in what crime that might be. Wanting to have decent health care for American citizens? Wanting them to be educated enough to compete in the world?

    Or are you calling him a criminal because he had Osama shot in the eye by Seal Team 6?

    I do not think that compares to the crimes of starting a war for Halliburton and Blackwater by information they concocted as W did. I do not think it qualifies to the level of a burglary and converup as Nixon did, and I do no think it rises to the level of expanding a covert war in Nicaragua and Panama that Reagan did.

    The insane rhetoric that the right has used through its means such as Rush Limbaugh and Faux News has gotten so out of control that the people are starting to believe the propaganda as fact.

    I do not think most voters will share your myopic view of the games the right are playing here, and will remind the republican party on election day when will make many republicans join the ranks of the unemployed.

  6. Welcome back DeConstructor! I was wondering when the old DeConstructor would be back, now we know!

    Obama is guilty of generational theft, as was W, and Clinton and all those before him and all those members of Congress too. They are all criminals in my book.

    Robbing from our kids of a better economic future by strapping each of them with tens of thousands of dollars of unsustainable debt is the same as walking out of Gary & Leo's without paying for a loaf of bread. The only difference is we stand idly by and let this happen and blindly support this cradle to grave, spoon-fed entitlement society we have created and so dramatically expanded over the last three years.

    Unions contribute to this when they demand, by way of unrealistic wage and benefit requests, compensation packages which make the very products they make so expensive they are no longer viable. So enter foreign labor or overseas manufacturing.

    Make no mistake, greed is greed. Whether it comes from the boardroom or the labor hall matters not in my opinion.

    The employment practices of the turn of the 20th century are out the window, UAW discussions over the last 10 years have had little to do with poor working conditions and much more to do with defined benefit retirement packages, and stock options. Hey that's capitalism.

    And watch what you say about Ronald Reagan and Lech Walesa. I've met Lech Walesa, I know him. He has nothing but admiration and respect for Reagan. In 2001 I had the great fortune of visiting with President Walesa when he visited Bozeman and I spent more than 4 hours with him one on one (and his interpreter) and we had a long talk about Reagan and the Cold War. He said with his own lips that the Solidarity movement would never have succeeded without Reagan's moral and financial support. The partnership between Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II and Lech Walesa resulted in one of the most amazing paradigm shifts in all of world history and most of us got to watch it on TV.

    The bottom line here is unions, like government and corporate greed are all out of control. GREECE, PORTUGAL, ITALY, IRELAND, are all examples of what results when you attempt to spend your way out of your woes.

    Not one of these actors is exclusively at fault, but collectively they are resulting in a collective, for lack of a better term, yelling out for, "give me a damn break!"

  7. One could certainly make an argument that what really crushed the USSR was not Reagan, Thatcher, John Paul, etc. but rather a lengthy, unjustified, stupid, expensive, and poorly planned war in Afghanistan.

    Reagan is idolized by the republicans to the point that each of the republican clowns running for prez try to name drop whenever possible, conveniently forgetting he raised taxes and (gasp) worked with democrats-something that is not only despised now- and will not go unnoticed by the voters.

    Teacher unions and the National Endowment for the Arts are convenient targets for the right, yet they are certainly being deceptive when they place the blame for our country's ills on them rather than those who have truly done multigenerational damage.

  8. Yes, Reagan raised taxes as part of a deal with Congressionmal Democrats that included a reduction in gov't spending. Then, guess what? The promised gov't spending reduction disappeared after taxes were increased.

  9. Obama is guilty of forcing Americans to buy garbage that is known to be a rip off all to benefit his campaign donors in the insurance industry and PHARMA. That's called corruption.

  10. DeConstructor... It never ceased to amaze me how someone can blame all of the worlds problems on the Republicans, while claiming that the Democrats had nothing to do with it at all. If you haven't figured out by now that both parties are equally to blame for the mess we are in, then you should stick your head back in the sand along with all the rest of your brain washed Dummycrat buddies. When will people wake up and go beyond party affiliation and fix whats broken.

  12. I do not consider the Democrats perfect. I am not a member of the Democratic Party.

    The republicans do stick to the party line, whether it is deceptive, misleading, or incredibly uniformed to the point their ignorance is dangerous.(see the comment from 'professor' above)

  13. I am in fact saying that President Obama should be charged with treason (which is a crime) We have never had a president that willfully and wantonly tried to purposely destroy our country like your great leader has done these last four years. He not only has sold us out but he has traveled the world apologizing because we are (were) the greatest nation on earth

    According to you it would seem I am a bit confused. In part I am confused because in 2008 Obama said that “Navy Seal Team 6 is Cheney’s private assassination team” yet in 2011 Obama said “I put together Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden”

    In 2008 Obama said “Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured alive and given a fair trial” but then he turned around and said in 2011 “I authorized Seal Team 6 to kill Bin Laden”

    In 2008 Obama said “Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary and the detainees should not be interrogated” but after Bin Laden was killed he bragged by saying that “Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to our locating Bin Laden”

    Your blind allegiance to the great one is frightening but as you have pointed out often my ability to comprehend the issues is sorely lacking. You should give me a little slack because isn’t your philosophy “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs?”
