In light of Detroit’s bankruptcy and carnage at the hand of unions you would think President Obama would use some Outcome Analysis. But that’s far from the case. The latest proof that community organizing is the life blood of this administration is the nomination of Nancy Schiffer to the National Labor Relations Board. Bill McMorris details this terrible pick at The Washington Free Beacon.
One of President Barack Obama’s new National Labor Relations Board nominees dedicated her career at the AFL-CIO to doing away with secret ballots in labor elections—a tactic critics say would make it easier to unionize and expose employees to intimidation.
Nancy Schiffer spent nearly three decades as a union attorney in a career that took her from Detroit’s United Auto Workers to associate general counsel at the AFL-CIO, a Democratic power broker that spent $30 million on the 2012 election. Schiffer took the lead in many unionization efforts across the country and has spent the past few years trying to do away with the secret ballot in union elections.
“[Card check] is needed to address a severe violation of human rights,” she testified to the House Education and Workforce Committee in 2004.
Schiffer has described the workplace as “an inherently coercive environment” that mandates public elections for unions.
