"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

Not to worry Harry, unions represent thier worker interests so well it wont be an issue, ask any UMW unemployed miner

The natural state of employment is a worker and employer. If a third party is to be brought in or recertified they need a majority of all

Absolutely, the Union should have to have a majority of those affected.

"If the Union organizer cannot convince them to vote for change, they are indeed NO votes."

In a decertification election, if the nonunion organizer cannot convince them to vote for change, are they indeed NO votes?

Suppose there is a decertification election. Should those who don't vote be counted as "no" on decertifying the union?

In elections, those who don't vote shouldn't have their votes counted. Yet, that is exactly what this rule advocates.

Suppose a ballot initiative is put before voters, say to require a balanced state budget. Should those whom the organizers "couldn't convince to change be indeed counted as no votes"?

I think not.

"change the "win" bar for a union certification election to include the majority of all affected employees, not just those who voted"

This means that those who don't vote are counted as "no" votes.

Of course the unions will hate it but as said, even the majority( hear that fluffy) of union households are in favor

Fantastic bill, would love to hear why it isnt.

The bill includes eight core provisions. It would require secret ballot elections to determine union representation; create union re-certification elections when half of the originally unionized employees have turned over; mandate opt-in rather than opt-out systems for voluntary contributions to union political operations, or "paycheck protection"; change the "win" bar for a union certification election to include the majority of all affected employees, not just those who voted; permit employees not to provide personal information to union organizers; provide protections from union coercion (including fines) blocking de-certification of an existing union; require secret ballot strike votes, eliminating the option to vote at union meetings following discussion; and criminalize union threats and violence.

Unions will hate it, but Americans love it

Yep from what i read its a winner.

Support the Employee Rights Act.

4 out of 5 Americans (including union households) support the Employee Rights Act.

Why pick on 13%? Because the unions legally shake down their membership for dues money spent on elections and not on the welfare of their members. Workers who speak out about the shake down get shunned by their “brotherhood”.
