The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has upped the anti-Obama-Administration ante. Yesterday, the Washington-based business federation launched a new radio ad campaign to educate lawmakers and the American public on what it describes as the National Labor Relations Board’s and the Department of Labor’s “aggressive and radical pro-union agenda.”
If you haven’t heard the ad — entitled Common Sense — yet, here’s the Chamber’s release about it, along with a link to the ad on Window’s Media Player. So far, it’s only airing in Florida, Missouri, Montana and Virginia, but chances are it might be coming to an airwave near you in the near future.
“When Congress failed to pass the card check bill, we know it was only a matter of time before the administration began using the regulatory process to tilt the playing field in organized labor’s favor,” says Randy Johnson, senior vice president of labor, immigration and employee benefits for the Chamber.
Nancy Cleeland, director of the NLRB’s Office of Public Affairs, says her organization is “declining comment” about the ad at this time. A spokesperson from the DOL’s Office of Public Affairs says her agency has no comment as well.
