Conservative union organization supports a national right-to-work law

Terry Bowman, founder of Union Conservatives and a UAW member, spoke before Congress yesterday. He’s been an assembly line worker at Ford Motor Co.’s Rawsonville, Michigan plant for 15 years. The Detroit News reported that Bowman told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that Congress should pass national “right to work” legislation and require new outside audits of union spending. “This would ensure that only those workers who agree with the political activities of their unions are paying for it, and those who, like myself, find the far-left political activities of their unions to be despicable, would not be forced, as a condition of employment, to financially support those activities,” he said.

Bowman was interviewed on Fox News today.

Union newsletter says Jesus supports Obamacare

In his testimony, Bowman reported “In our local [union] newsletter, called the Raw Facts, there was an article in there that said ‘Health Care Reform, what would Jesus do?’, and in this article it basically made Jesus appear as if, according to scripture, that he was number one a socialist, and number two that he would approve of the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare).”

On Monday Steve Buckstein of the Cascade Policy Institute made the case for why Oregon should join 23 other states in becoming a right-to-work state.
