How do you Define Union Busting?

Limiting Collective Bargaining for Public workers, is union busting to some?  Soooooo

Title VII of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, signed by Jimmy Carter~ governs federal employer and employee labor relations.

"The scope of mandatory collective bargaining for federal employees is limited to personnel employment practices only."

How is this FEDERAL law any different from what Wisconsin, Ohio, and many other states are looking to do?

  • Federal employees have an option to join a union. The union negotiates on behalf of all federal employees but their powers are limited. Federal employees are easier to fire than most people think. Union busting takes away an employee's right to have a say in not only their salary structure and benefits but also working conditions. Take away any negotiation and we could see businesses abusing their employees, much like Wal-Mart does now.  Businesses that have unions should require all employees to become members.  It's not fair for a few to be members and negotiate everyone's salaries and benefits leaving those who are not members taking advantage of those doing the negotiation on their behalf.  The other benefit of belonging to a union is that you have a voice when it comes to lobbying and campaign donations.  To bust a union is to bust a voice and leverage.

    You do not have a voice. You just contribute to the campaign of the union officials choice. Not necessarily your own choice. Public unions are nothing more than legal money laundering for the democrat party at tax payer expense.

    correct?
    Why do you make such a stupid statement as that?

    The law was SIGNED by CARTER.

    Ok, here is where LOGIC comes into play~ Because, today~ in 2011~ I don't see unions/protesters screaming, pushing, threatening, and hitting for Collective Bargaining Power in the FEDERAL work force...  Nope... Socialist organizations, Big Donor Unions aren't letting a crisis (in Wisconsin) go to waste...  But they aren't very consistent..  Is a protest on the Capital by these socialists and Big Unions next? If you are going to FIGHT for collective bargaining, why not make it across the board, right?
