He does not see the secret ballot as a democratic process. He believes that workers should not be allowed the freedom self-determination rather workers should be forced to give an exclusive authority to negotiate working conditions. He believes the U.S. Government should not be neutral during organizing drives, Uncle Sam should help the union.
He's since taken this stance back but that came just in time to be nominated for head of the National Labor Relations Board. The president has attempted to use the EPA to impose his environmental vision. That's had moderate success so far. This would be no different.
EFCA would have absolutely no chance of passing. It is dead on arrival. Yet, Becker doesn't see EFCA as a matter for the legislature. Instead, Becker sees EFCA as a regulatory matter. Regulators often get their power from vaguely defined responsibilities.
The NLRB is just one example. It is the perfect opportunity for the sort of ideological power play that Becker is attempting. That's why his appointment should be opposed. So far, not only the 41 Republicans appear on board with a filibuster but at least Ben Nelson has joined them.
