My dad was a loyal union guy, a Teamster, so I got lots of information about the workings of the union.
During one particularly difficult strike, the union held a contract vote. This is how the vote was taken.
All those against this contract say Aye! ( about 70 % said aye according to pops)So when I read articles about the unions trying to get non secret elections for union votes it almost makes sick. Everyone, understands that secret votes are the cornerstone of democracy. Imagine a party official standing beside you as you cast your vote for an office holder. It would be Cuba.
Who are the pussies for it. ( silence)
Let it be noted that rejection of this contract was unanimous.
George Will has a great piece about pending legislation making all union votes non secret ballots.
If this legislation passes, you can watch the remaining bits of our manufacturing industry head elsewhere. We won't have to worry about immigration amnesty, we'll all have have to move to Mexico to do the jobs we're doing here.
