2009 will no doubt go into the record books unfortunately, though, for all of the wrong reasons. Big Labor, like the SEIU, AFL-CIO, NEA, UAW, etc., was granted unprecedented power by the Obama administration, with the most notable being the United Auto Workers (UAW) union near 20% ownership of General Motors. But since Obama is such a caring and thoughtful undocumented president, he needed to give one more gift to the unions under the radar.
His latest gift will allow unions to avoid disclosing what exactly they do with their millions of dollars in forced union-dues. The current law was in place until December 30th and required union bosses to carefully document the millions of dollars they deduct from union members' paychecks as a condition of employment. This money is then used to support primarily political groups and elections of individuals that support their agenda.
A large part of the union funds were about to be made public and reported by the Department of Labor disclosure form known as the Form T-1 Annual Report, as reported by BigGovernment.com. Thanks to Obama, that won't happen anymore. So no longer can teachers of the left-wing National Education Association (NEA) see that about 90% of their dues go to supporting members of the Democrat party!
The Obama administration, which has been paying the unions back for their support in winning the election through the phony $787 billion stimulus bill among other ways, has stated they plan to completely eliminate the financial disclosure in 2010. This really is the most transparent administration in history!
As left-wing thug and president of the Soviet Employees International Union (SEIU) Andy Stern would say, "workers of the world unite!"
