Arizona Republican Congressional Candidate Ben Quayle today pledged support for Proposition 113, a state ballot initiative that preserves the right of Arizonans to a secret ballot in union elections. Quayle, who is seeking to represent Congressional District Three, challenged his Democratic opponent in the race to join him in support of Proposition 113.
"I support Proposition 113 because the continuing attempt by some politicized labor unions to destroy the secret ballot threatens the rights of Arizona workers to free and fair elections," Quayle said. "I call on my opponent to do the right thing: Support this initiative and reject the Obama administration's so-called "Card Check" legislation, which will hurt the American worker in favor of continued political manipulation of and by once-honorable labor unions," he added.
"Unions should return to their legitimate function of advocacy and bargaining for sound conditions and fair compensation for labor," Quayle added, "and stop their long slide into left-wing political activism that operates against the economic interests of union members."
