(OPEN):
THE COALITION TO PROTECT MISSOURI JOBS WAS RECENTLY LAUNCHED TO EDUCATE VOTERS, ACROSS THE STATE, ON IMPORTANT WORKPLACE-ISSUES THAT, IT BELIEVES, WILL PLAY A CENTRAL ROLE IN FEDERAL RACES THIS NOVEMBER.  THE COALITION'S STATE-DIRECTOR, JASON KLINDT [LIKE "CLINT"], DISCUSSES WHAT HE CALLS A CRITICAL UPCOMING VOTE IN THE SENATE THAT WOULD STOP IMPLEMENTATION OF A RULING FROM THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD THAT THE COALITION SAYS WOULD ALLOW FOR "RECKLESS 'AMBUSH ELECTIONS'"...

(KLINDT):
"
MEMBERS OF MISSOURI'S CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION--PARTICULARLY SENATOR MCCASKILL--WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO LET THEIR CONSTITUENTS KNOW IF THEY STAND WITH WASHINGTON 'BIG LABOR'-BOSSES--OR, INSTEAD, WITH MISSOURI JOB-CREATORS.  A 'JOINT RESOLUTION OF DISAPPROVAL' THAT'S EXPECTED TO BE VOTED ON IN THE SENATE SOON WOULD PROTECT MISSOURI-WORKERS, BY STOPPING THE N-L-R-B-RULE THAT WOULD BOTH EXPEDITE UNION-ELECTIONS TO AS FEW AS SEVEN TO 10 DAYS--AND DISALLOW WORKERS FROM MAKING AN INFORMED DECISION."

(BRIDGE):
THE COALITION ALSO ARGUES THAT MISSOURI'S SMALL BUSINESSES WOULD BENEFIT FROM ENACTMENT OF THE SENATE-RESOLUTION--BECAUSE IT WOULD ENSURE THAT EMPLOYERS HAVE EQUAL TIME TO EDUCATE THEIR WORKERS ON THE IMPACTS OF UNIONIZATION...

(KLINDT):
"
THIS N-L-R-B-RULING WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A PAYBACK TO UNION-BOSSES, TO HELP STEM THEIR DECLINING MEMBERSHIP--AND IT MAKES A MOCKERY OF THE SECRET-BALLOT.  PASSAGE OF THIS RESOLUTION WOULD ENSURE THAT EMPLOYERS ARE ABLE TO FAIRLY TELL THEIR SIDE OF THE STORY--ESPECIALLY SINCE MANY OF THEM CAN'T AFFORD [THE] PROPER COUNSEL TO DEAL WITH COMPLEX LABOR-LAWS.  MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE RESOLUTION WOULD ENSURE THAT THE FREEDOMS OF WORKERS AND SMALL BUSINESSES ARE PROTECTED.  MISSOURIANS WILL BE WATCHING TO SEE HOW SENATOR MCCASKILL VOTES ON THESE 'AMBUSH ELECTIONS'."
