Legislative Scorecard

By combining votes on civil liberties, non-intervention, personal freedom, government spending, and monetary policy we are able to provide a more accurate measure of who supports the liberty agenda. We can also prevent legislators from claiming support when convenient but voting the other way when they think no one is watching. We are watching and with your help - we will ensure Congress knows it.

Bill Description

This bill, originally introduced by Rep. Price (R-GA), would protect employees by providing them the right to vote privately in a secret ballot election before forming a union, accepting a contract, or going on strike. The bill would also allow employees to opt out of providing their contact information to potential union organizers and would let union members vote on whether or not unions could spend their dues on matters such as political action.

Liberty for All's Position

Liberty For All supports the right of employees to make their own decisions regarding union membership and to do so free from extortion, intimidation, and/or coercion. By providing for a secret ballot election, employees can exercise their opinions without fear of retribution and through the regular voting provisions would have more opportunities to address how their funds were spent. This bill represents an important first step towards increasing transparency while protecting the rights of individual workers.

Current Status

This bill was assigned to a congressional committee on November 14, 2013, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.
