    I thought you all moved out of the Union Building, so I’m checking for a correct address. Thanks

    Simple plan to “re-cimate” labor unions: new Dem Congress passes legislation to make 80 year old NLRB work again: simply mandate union certification elections at every private workplace; one, three or five years apart, plurality rules where certification wins. Any workplace that votes against certification the first time out can have a chance to re-think after three years hence, the first time; after that it’s five years.

    Hottest issue in a hundred years possibly: most every family will be affected profoundly economically and politically. Hottest by simple logistics — 94% de-unionized workforce desperately wants and needs protection.

    What can Repubs say — mandated elections were their idea! In Wisconsin public employee unions are bound to re-certify every year; majority of member required for cert, not just of who voted. Florida Repubs now want public teachers union(s?) to de-certify anytime union membership falls below 50% of original number (can happen in summer when some go but nobody comes): de-certification without and election!

    Neither mandate follow up certification elections if union can’t meet hard squeeze rules one time. Both probably unconstitutional attempts to crowd out freedom of association.

    All Democrats and employees want is democracy.
