A question mainly for union members...
All employees and union organizers would have full knowledge how each person votes as soon as the vote is conducted.
How do you feel about it?
I mean...what the hell...nothing wrong with that, right?
I wonder where the money leads....any guesses?

Do you really care? Or are you just trying to bring up more crap that Obama and McCain are opposed on? Seeing how Obama co-sponsored it and McCain is against it. These political threads are getting old.

Why, thanks for the genuine concern.
As a former union member of local 1110 outa Silver Spring it's shit like this that added impetus for me to get out.

Well, there could be problems with union members that are "close" with the company, reporting to the company which employees voted for what. This could allow for retaliation by the company to the employee's that voted unfavorably (in company eyes.)
I have seen cases were "working foremen" (supervisors that were still union members) attended union meetings and couldn't wait to run to the company and report what was said and who said it.
I personally have never been shy about letting others know how I felt about a contract or grievance issue. But that's just me.

Hmm...problem with those deemed "close to the company"?
How about those not voting for the continued presence of certain union bosses?

Well after reading a little more about the bill, it seems that the open vote would only be for starting a new union (local) not general union hall voting.
Yea, I have always been against "union bosses." One or the other, make a choice.

Well, I guess there wouldn't be any harm in just having an open vote when deciding to unionize...or not....from the company or the union.

When was the last time there was any action on this? The only dates I can find are from last year for the House and Senate (S. 1041).

Last year, huh?
What changed between 2001 and 2007?
In 2001 the Republicans controlled congress. In 2007 it was the Democrats ... and it looks like it's time to return some favors.
