Big Labor is pouring money into two Democratic U.S. Senate races, attempting to secure a union pension bailout during a lame duck session of Congress.

Claims of holding on to Senate majorities for passage of the card check legislation is a ruse, according to Brett McMahon, spokesman for the Associated Builders and Contractors, a trade organization.

“Unlike a vote for elected office, a vote to certify a union may affect your life for the remainder of your working days,” McMahon said.  “Isn’t it just logical that the decision should be made on all information available?”

The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation represented the Dana employees and compiled a video of employees’ statements of the types of intimidation and threats used to coerce employees into signing the authorization card.

Legislation from Sen. Bob Casey (D-Penn.) is all geared up and ready to go.  The Casey bill would put a new line item into the budget, creating a new government fund to perpetuate a permanent avenue for the bailout of private union pensions.
