According to a BigGovernment.com post, there are only 4 days left to tell the Obama Administration where they can stick its latest gift to Big Labor. With likely heavy Democrat losses next month, the Obama Administration will be trying to force more Big Labor friendly regulations through its controlled federal agencies. It is time to act and let them know that we are watching and that we intend to make them pay a heavy price everything that they steal:
Again, Obama Administration appointees ignore their own conflicts of interest; this time it is to rescind conflicts of interest disclosure regulations that only benefit Big Labor Bosses! The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is scheming to eliminate the 2007 union official conflict of interest reporting regulations – but wait there is more.

DOL Secretary Hilda Solis (former treasurer of Big Labor front group American Rights At Work), Deputy Solicitor of Labor Deborah Greenfield (who was a named litigator in a lawsuit filed by the AFL-CIO to strike down the rule that DOL now intends to rescind), and Deputy Asst.

1) Eliminate reporting of special employer payments to union officers and other union officials like shop stewards,
2) Exclude union stewards from conflict of interest altogether,
3) Eliminate reporting of certain loans to union officials, like loans from union operated credit unions,
4) Eliminate disclosure of any money that union officials may receive surreptitiously from union trusts like strike funds, vacation funds, slush funds etc., and
5) Redefine the word “employer” so that it excludes any labor unions that have employees.
