Sen. Landrieu: Enemy to Louisiana Workers

    Free Market Group Condemns Vote to Strip Worker of Private Ballots

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 /EMWNews/ -- As Labor Day approaches,

the Alliance for Worker Freedom's (AWF) Executive Director Brian M. Johnson

issued the following statement condemning Senator Landrieu's vote to side

with Big Labor against the average rank-and-file workers in Louisiana by

supporting H.R. 800, the so-called "Employee Free Choice Act."

    Endorsed by the Communist Party USA and introduced by Congressional

Democrats, H.R. 800 would disenfranchise all workers by taking away their

right to a private ballot vote when deciding on whether or not to organize

a union. H.R. 800 passed the U.S. House of Representatives but failed to

pass in the Senate.

    In a recent statement, AWF Executive Director Brian M. Johnson said,

"It should be no surprise that Sen. Landrieu is siding with not only the

extreme left, but the Communist Party in pledging to carry out the

anti-democratic bidding of Labor Union bosses. Lopsided campaign

contributions from Big Labor to the left translate directly into votes as

not one Democrat in the Senate opposed this measure which strips the

private ballot voting right of the American worker!"

    "Senator Landrieu is proving to the American worker that big labor

trumps worker privacy by voting to trample on the rights of the American

worker," says Johnson. "Card check makes employees vulnerable to union

threats and their families' targets of discrimination by organized labor.

Landrieu should have to answer to Louisiana workers."

    The recent polling data released by American Solutions for Winning the

Future, indicates that 77 percent of Republicans, 82 percent of Democrats

and 79 percent of independents, out of 1,000 American voters polled believe

in protecting private union ballots. According to Johnson, "clearly Sen.

Landrieu, the other Senate Democrats and the Communist Party have a

different view for the future of America."
