Coalition Releases New McCaskill Video
Senator Continues To Dodge The Question Of Micro Unions

Kansas City, MO – The Coalition to Protect Missouri Jobs (CPMOJ) today unveiled a new video highlighting Senator Claire McCaskill’s continued effort to “dodge” questions from small business owners and employees regarding her position on micro-unions.
 
Meanwhile, McCaskill is telling voters in the Show Me State they have a right to know where candidates stand on the issues.  In a recent video clip, McCaskill says, “voters have a right to know how you’re going to vote.”  It is time for Senator McCaskill to tell Missourians where she stands on these important issues.

“It’s time that Claire McCaskill stopped dodging the question and come clean with Missourians,” said Jason Klindt, state director of the Coalition to Protect Missouri Jobs (CPMOJ).  “Either she stands with job creators or she stands with Big Labor.  Which is it?”

In August 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) reached a decision in the Specialty Healthcare case allowing for the formation of multiple micro-unions within a single company.  These small unions with varying interests and agendas compete to influence, and in some cases, threaten employees and management. 
 
In a recent decision, the NLRB’s Regional Director in New York City approved a micro-union application for employees at the Bergdorf Goodman retailer allowing the formation of separate unions for part- and full-time employees in the second floor designer shoe department and fifth floor contemporary shoe department.  These micro-unions can have as few as two or three members, and their implementation will cause confusion for workers throughout the entire workplace.    

The Coalition to Protect Missouri Jobs is an organization committed to protecting jobs in Missouri and standing up for the workers and small businesses in the state that grow the economy and create opportunities.
