Will those who want a “roll call” vote on forming a union — after all, that is what a “card check” system really is — accept the following? The law establishing this identified and signed vote must include continuation of the “card check” for rejection of the union when it proves to be nonresponsive to the members’ wishes, and the law must establish a prison term of not less than two years for conviction of harassment over the vote cast.
If this bad idea is passed, it must provide protection for those who are made targets for harassment by the public nature of the records. The records themselves must remain available for any who wish to count the votes. The “card check” itself must be made not less than once a month.
