Richard Griffin, the new general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, wants to give unions a veto over a unionized employer’s decision to relocate. If Griffin has his way, and he most assuredly will, some unionized businesses will be pinned in place at the discretion of their unions.
In the Leftist dream world, Big Labor would have the most financial influence in politics and be in complete control of the companies they plague (and will eventually bankrupt). These aren’t the unions of old, which genuinely protected the rights of workers. These are power-hungry madmen who don’t give a damn about any rights other than theirs to power.
They also know that the trend in many places has been away from forced participation in their schemes and that has them running scared and overreaching. The political landscape has gotten so ridiculous, however, that some of the overreaching might just work for them.
