My goodness, how did we get on to "my bill is stronger than your bill"?
THIS IS ABOUT CNA ACTING AS A UNION BUSTER.
One of labor's main issues is to get a "freedom to organize" bill passed, so workers will be able to vote for a union, free from interference, intimidation, and harrassment--sounds like the neutrality agreements both SEIU and CNA have participated in before, and like the one in Ohio. (Although, previously, most of us would have thought the freedom was from employers doing these things--not from unions!)
Is the CNA suddenly opposed to freedom to organize on principle? Or just when you are not on the ballot???
Do you want this vicious in-fighting to go on forever?
Or did CNA just want to bust up an election for 8000 workers because they were not there? (that would be a "yes".)
CNA would not even allow a large portion of those healthcare workers into their organization, so their function was purely as a spoiler.
No matter what justifications you offer up for it, CNA harmed those workers. If CNA wanted in, they had 3 years to act--but that is not their modus operandi.
They would rather destroy workers' chances at a better life.
Shame on you, CNA.
