” George Soros-funded Media Matters for America , a far-left progressive group that has as one of their top priorities to attack FOX News, is taking a very unprogressive-like stance on labor unions. While MMFA has in the past taken a strong stance against secret ballot union elections, especially if it involved an opportunity to attack the GOP and conservatives, when it comes to their organization, they are not only in support of the secret ballot; they are forcing it.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Maryland based SEIU Local 500 filed papers to unionize at MMFA with the National Labor Relations Board. As workers prepare to vote on whether to join SEIU, George Soros’s Media Matters has told them the voting must take place by secret ballot.
The liberal organization, which is headed by Hillary Clinton cheerleader David Brock, has hired management-side labor attorneys at Perkins Cole, a firm that has represented dozens of Democratic candidates and liberal PACs, to oversee the process.
It is unclear why Media Matters did not opt to allow its employees to organize through a card check campaign, in which a union submits signed petitions from employees expressing their interest to join the union. MMFA, its attorneys, and the SEIU did not return requests for comment. “
