A Bill

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the “National Right-to-Work Act”.

SEC. 2. AMENDMENTS TO THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT.

Mr.Speaker,

Will the Democrats continue putting up Germain amendments and continue to lose seats in the general election as a result or do they wish to put aside their pettiness and actually debate this bill?

I yield.

Mr. Speaker,

could those in opposition to the bill present why the oppose the bill I am genuinely interested.

I yield

Mr. Speaker,

Closed shop employment, where employers only hire union members, is already banned under Taft-Hartley. This bill would allow workers to receive the benefits the union has fought to give them without ever having to pay union fees. I thought the majority hated so-called "freeloaders."

"Right to work" is a misnomer and is nothing more than a ploy by big business to destroy organized labor.

I yield.

Amendment rejected as non-germane

I'll save some time and decree that all the amendments have been rejected as non-germane

I would like to remind the Members of this House that wrecking amendments are out of order, I would urge everyone to engage constructively with this bill rather than introducing amendments to see it introduced in a millennium's time or to see it close the next day etc.

*Hands off of the Gavel*

Mr Speaker,

I rise to address this bill and the right of the worker to not be affiliated with a union should they not wish to be so. At present our laws allow for a union shop arrangement to be made via collective bargaining arrangement, what this means is that workers are obliged to join a union as a condition of employment. Simply put Mr Speaker why should we obligate an individual to join a union as a condition of employment? Unions are inherently partisan institutions who take the money raised by their fees and use it for political ends as well as for the supposed good of their members. I am not against union membership, I actively support a healthy set of trades unions as a counterbalance to big business pushing the little guy or gal around, but I am equally against the idea that one can be fired for leaving a union. It is imperative that we in this country do not replace excessive business power with excessive union power, giving unions the power to essentially fire someone by expelling them is excessive union power, that is why I have proposed this bill and that is why it is essential that we pass it here today.

I yield.

*Hands back on the Gavel*
