On the StopUnionStimulus.com website, the Free Enterprise Alliance encourages IL's 8th CD voters to push Congressman Joe Walsh towards supporting non-union crews' opportunities to bid on federally-funded construction jobs:
An executive order from President Obama encourages federal agencies to mandate project labor agreements on federal construction projects exceeding $25 million in total cost.
Congressman Walsh Voted the Wrong Way
Your tax dollars shouldn’t be used to line the pockets of politically powerful labor unions. Union mandates trade jobs on federal construction projects for political support from special interests. Congressman Walsh voted to uphold an executive order from President Obama that encourages federal agencies to use union mandates on all federal construction projects exceeding $25 million in total cost. Congressman Walsh has shown his support for an Obama administration policy that is anti-jobs and anti-American.
Congressman Walsh was elected to represent you and your community – not Big Labor. He has pledged his support of small government and small businesses – yet he voted to support an anti-competitive and costly Big Government, Big Labor initiative.
Tell Congressman Walsh to fix his position and protect local jobs while preventing government waste. You can make a difference in this important issue by letting him know that you stand in support of local builders and construction workers against costly union mandates, and sharing the message through your social networks.
