The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Associated Oregon Industries filed a lawsuit Tuesday, arguing that a new Oregon law unconstitutionally eliminates an employer’s right to conduct mandatory meetings with employees to rebut union rhetoric and provide information about the drawbacks of a unionized workplace.
The law, known as SB 519, is scheduled to become effective Jan. 1. The case is Associated Oregon Industries and Chamber of Commerce of the United States v. Brad Avakian and Laborers’ International Union of North America, Local No. 296.
"Some employers seem to be threatened by the idea that they will no longer be able to fire or punish workers who don't want to sit down and listen to their opinions on non-work-related topics," said Tom Chamberlain, Oregon AFL-CIO president, in a statement. "But for too many years, Oregonians have felt threatened by their bosses telling them how to vote or what to believe. (The measure) is necessary, overwhelmingly supported by Oregonians, and legal."

I don't remember the date of the post but not long ago I referenced a moonbatty accusation by BlueOregonner Kari Chisholm where he was insinuating that conservatives (tea party folks even) had maybe set fire to a Union office in Portland.(from nwrepublican.blogspot.com)
Of course Chisholm, being a moonbat, did not have anything to base his claim on. And being a moonbat he did not need any.
However I had mentioned that there have been a number of instances where hate-filled leftwing radicals have in fact vandalized their own properties in the hopes of pinning the vandalism on conservatives. Well the hate-filled hoaxster pled guilty in Denver.
So does being a moonbat also mean that you never have to say you're sorry?
