NLRB Now Going to Court to Defeat Secret Ballots

As reported in this NYT article, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is threatening to sue four states that recently passed ballot measures requiring secret ballot votes by workforces when deciding to unionize. Raising the federal agency's activism to new heights, there can be no doubt to the intent of the NLRB to completely railroad overwhelming public sentiment in their efforts to force unions down every employers throat...even if the majority of those workforces aren't interested. Buckle up, 2011 is going to be a bumpy labor ride.
