Senator Rand Paul Introduces Anti-Union Amendment To NLRA
Tea Party favorite Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) introduced a bill (S. 204) that would amend the National Labor Relations Act to bar the inclusion of union security clauses in collective bargaining agreements, which require the payment of union dues or fees as a condition of employment. The proposed National Right-to-Work Act also would amend the Railway Labor Act. The bill currently has 10 co-sponsors, all Republicans.
Expect it to go nowhere, but it demonstrates that there are a number of anti-union Senators in the Congress.
