Board Changes Unionization Rule

/

The National Mediation Board has changed a rule making it easier for labor unions to unionize a workplace.  According to AP, the Board "would recognize a union if a simple majority of those voting approve organizing. The old rule -- in place for 76 years -- required a majority of the entire work force to favor unionizing. That meant workers who didn't vote were counted as 'no' votes."  As in all things electoral, it's your vote.  Make it count.
