Stop Lame Duck Union Payoff

Stop Lame Duck Union Payoff

The Lame Ducks just don't know when to quit. We've been warning you for months that before the Democrats leave town for the holidays that Senator Harry Reid was going to try one last giveaway to his union buddies. Tomorrow is the day he's going to try and we need your help to stop him.
On Thursday the Senate will vote on S. 3991, the so-called "Public Employee-Employer Cooperation Act." Per usual, it has a wonderful name that is more or less the opposite of what the bill actually is- an unnecessary, expensive, and harmful bill that would force state and local governments to recognize union bosses as the exclusive bargaining agents for public-safety workers.

This bill is an unfunded mandate on state and local government that will force a higher tax burden at the state and local levels. It would strengthen public employee unions by forcing more workers into them when they are already strangling state and local governments fiscally. Shockingly, this bill would even force Right to Work states to unionize their public safety workforces.
Thankfully, all 42 Senate Republicans have promised to block any and all Lame Duck legislation until the looming tax hikes are fixed and government is funded. We need to remind them to stand by that commitment and tell the Democrats how egregious this union payoff really is.
