Property Rights Debated in Farmers’ Fight of Unionizing Law



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

Does a union have the same right as government to trespass on your property?  They think so.  Unions feel they own all property and government workers.  So, if they want workers to be forced to pay bribes to work, why shouldn’t they interrupt work on private property?  Why not harass them by going to their homes, the park when workers are playing with their kids and tracking them down at the grocery store.  Unions act more like organized than a legitimate organization.

“An attorney for California farmers on Friday asked a Ninth Circuit panel to forbid agricultural union organizers from entering the farmers’ property without permission, in a case with major implications for private property rights.

Circuit Judges Edward Leavy, William Fletcher and Richard Paez gave little indication which way they were leaning at the Friday hearing, largely refraining from asking questions and instead allowing each lawyer to make their case.

Wen Fa, attorney for Cedar Point Nursery located near the California-Oregon border, said allowing labor organizers on to private property amounts to a public taking and dramatically infringes the private property rights of farm owners.”

Private property exists except when unions want entrance.  Will the courts return Constitutional rights to farmers?

My dad as contractor in New England had union bosses over for dinner once a month when I was eight. After they left I asked him why he passed out $100 bills under the table. “That’s the best way to keep union organizers off my work site, was his smart reply. A little shakedown goes a long way.”
I’ve been a Republican ever since.
