http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/big-labor-slapped-down-congress-should-do-likewise/article/2601468 Big Labor slapped down — Congress should do likewise A jury in Houston handed down an important verdict this week that you probably haven't heard about. It will affect the way unions behave when trying to organize workers. The SEIU lost a $5.3 million judgment for business defamation in a lawsuit filed nine years ago. The case stems from an organizing drive it conducted to force America's sixth-largest cleaning service, Professional Janitorial Service, to accept union representation without a secret-ballot vote by its staff. The case sheds light on the tactics unions use with impunity against innocent companies. It also exposes their real intentions for workers. It shows why Congress needs to step in and thwart them. Their underhanded methods are becoming more prevalent as they have become ever-more desperate to rope in private-sector employees. This case is a big deal because it's the first time the SEIU has been forced to defend its shabby behavior in court. The jury was clearly disgusted by the union's gutter tactics and made its decision in just eight hours.
