Union Watchdog Group Runs Full Page Ads Criticizing Unions for Economic and Employment Woes Center for Union Facts Exposes Union Leaders' Scheme to Effectively Eliminate Secret Ballot Elections on the Job WASHINGTON, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the Center for Union Facts ran full page ads in TheNew York Times and USA Today, taking labor union leaders to task for aiding in bankrupting American industries and hobbling our economic competitiveness. The ad comes on the heels of the labor movement's new campaign to push the deceptively named Employee Free Choice Act, which would effectively eliminate employees' right to a private ballot vote when it comes to voting to join -- or not to join -- a union. The national print ad, which features a gate with a closed sign hanging from it, reads: "Like what union leaders did to steel, airline and auto industry jobs? Then you'll love what they do to yours." "With the economy sputtering, businesses posting record losses, and tens of thousands of American workers being laid off, this is a terrible time for America to receive a shock to its economic competitiveness," said Center for Union Facts Managing Director J. Justin Wilson. "But that's exactly what union leaders have in store for American workers. From inflexible work rules and job assignments to uncompetitive wage demands, they are trying to do to many American businesses what they already did to the steel, airline, and automotive industries." Wilson continued: "Working Americans need to recognize the realities of the modern labor movement. Labor leaders have alienated workers through gross mismanagement of dues and disrespect for their right to vote in secret ballot elections. The precipitous decline of organized labor is a direct result of employees across the country realizing that corrupt, power-hungry union leaders are not looking out for anyone but themselves." The Center for Union Facts is also airing television ads across the country exposing labor bosses' scheme to effectively do away with private ballot elections.
