Townhall - Don't Let Unions Get Your Phone Number & Email Address 






Protect Your Privacy!

Starting April 14, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) will require businesses to surrender lists of employees’ phone numbers and personal email addresses to union organizers. Giving away employees’ personal contact information violates basic privacy rights and will inevitably lead to workers being targeted for harassment at the hands of union bosses.

Congress is getting ready to vote on a Congressional Review Act resolution that will tell the NLRB to stop using government power to benefit union bosses.

Tell Washington that you want to protect your privacy by sending a virtual “Do Not Disturb” letter. Click here and send a letter to Congress. Your support is critical to protect workers’ privacy rights.

Unlike the government's proposal, this letter is voluntary!

That in turn creates different conflicts than those found on Capitol Hill. And nowhere is that more visible than in the growing conflict between state and local Democratic elected officials trying to put their governments’ finances in order. > View more

Green Groups Demonstrate Their Unreasonableness with Response to EPA’s Coal Ash Rule

Two Fridays ago, EPA promulgated a final regulation, pursuant to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”), that establishes first ever federal limits on the disposal of “coal combustion residuals” (i.e., byproducts of burning coal for power). Coal combustion residuals also are known as “coal ash.”

Environmentalists aren’t happy with the rule, having deemed it too lenient. Their true motive is to make coal power cost prohibitive, and thereby move America “beyond coal.” > Read more
