Dear Conservatives,

The Obama Labor Board has devised new rules designed to turn every small business into a "labor law violator" -- and your National Right to Work Foundation is fighting back.

Foundation attorneys have already successfully delayed the implementation of the "Notice Posting Rule" until January 31, 2012.

And this week, Foundation attorneys filed a motion for summary judgment in federal court to permanently kill this unprecedented power grab.

Let me tell you why this case is so important.

You see, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has invented out of whole cloth a new unfair labor practice without Congressional approval

Any job provider that fails to post the biased notice could find itself forced into a lengthy and costly legal battle -- and Mom and Pop simply can't afford that, especially in this economy.

Not only that, the new rules do not require union officials to issue information about workers' rights to refrain from union membership or opt out of union dues.

No other federal agency has ever made it unlawful to fail to post a notice that wasn't required by Congress.

The new policy hands aggressive union organizers another weapon in so-called "corporate campaigns" in which they drag a business through the mud in the media with frivolous accusations of employer misconduct.

Under the NLRB's new rules, anyone -- even a visiting union boss pretending to be a customer -- can accuse the business of committing an unfair labor practice if they don't see the biased notice on display.

Then, union bosses only back off after the business agrees to throw its employees under the bus and let the union launch an abusive "card check" organizing campaign.

Meanwhile, experts believe the NLRB is scheming to impose card check "neutrality agreements" on businesses found to have committed labor law violations.


There's no tactic an aggressive union organizer won't try.

The Foundation has provided free legal aid to victims of abusive card check tactics before.

But I'm afraid if Big Labor and the Obama Administration get their way, we might not have the resources to defend all the new victims.

That's why, with your continued support, the Foundation is challenging the new NLRB posting rule before it's too late.

Now that Big Labor can't count on Congress to deliver its agenda, "Plan B" is in full effect.

And thanks to you, we're fighting back every step of the way for independent-minded workers.
