Make Congress hold a public,roll call vote on the National Right To Work Act

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Don't let this opportunity slip away.

As letters, postcards, phone calls, emails and petitions from Right to Work supporters like you continue to pour in on Capitol Hill, the number of Congressmen and Senators signing on as cosponsors of the National Right to Work Act continues to grow.

So now it's time to take the next step and urge the U.S. House and Senate Leadership to schedule public, roll-call votes on our bill.

With strong support in Congress -- and the fact that nearly eight out of ten Americans believe it's just plain wrong to force workers to join or pay dues to a labor union as a condition of employment -- bringing up the National Right to Work Act for a vote should be an easy decision.

But as I'm sure you know, in Washington, nothing moves unless it's pushed.

That's why it's vital you sign your petition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, urging them to schedule roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act (S. 391/H.R. 612).

The fact is, Big Labor's stranglehold on workers has dire consequences for all Americans:

*** Millions of working Americans are forced to pay union dues out of every paycheck -– diverting to union bosses money that could go to workers' families or be saved for their future.

*** Forced-unionism is a dead weight on key parts of the American economy.

Productivity-killing work rules, a hate-the-boss mentality, slowdowns and strikes all take their crippling toll on our already struggling economy, closing down companies here and sending good jobs overseas.

***Big Labor's forced-dues treasury is pure poison to our political system.

Union political operatives use forced-dues dollars to fund a massive political machine that reaches into Congress, every state house, most city halls, police stations, firehouses and school districts across the country -- resulting in skyrocketing government spending and soaring taxes.

***Union toughs terrorize workers and communities with violent strikes -- where they get away with beatings, arson -- even murder.

A national Right to Work law would put an end to these outrages and strip from Big Labor the power to force workers to pay dues and fees just to keep a job -- a power union bosses should never have been granted in the first place.

And just getting a vote is a win/win scenario for opponents of forced-unionism.

You see, every time in the last 40 years Congress has had to take a public stand on whether or not workers should be forced to pay tribute to a union boss to earn a living and feed their families, politicians who kowtowed to Big Labor have gone down in flames at the ballot box.

Today, with the November Elections on the horizon, you and I have a tremendous opportunity to expose Big Labor's pet politicians and hold them accountable.

But, roll-call votes are key.

That's why it's crucial you sign your petition to Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan, urging them to hold votes on the National Right to Work Act at once.

History has shown that convincing Congress to take action will take a tidal wave of pressure from Americans across the country.

So, if at all possible, along with your signed petition, please chip in $10 or $25 to help the Committee mobilize tens of thousands of Right to Work supporters nationwide to urge leadership to hold roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act.

In this crucial election year, it is up to you and me to put Congress on record for or against compulsory unionism.

Please act TODAY!

Sincerely,

Mark Mix
President, National Right to Work

P.S. As support for the National Right to Work Act continues to surge in Congress, now is the time to insist Congressional Leadership schedules public, roll-call votes on our bill.

That's why it's vital you click here and sign your petition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan at once.

And along with your signed petitions, please chip in $10 or $25 to help mobilize opponents of forced-unionism nationwide to pressure Congress to vote on this crucial legislation.
