Ex-GM exec: Ambush elections are payback to unions

A former GM executive states what most people already suspect: that the NLRB's ambush elections rule is payback for the Democrats' Big Labor buddies, CNBC tells us.
A federal rule that fast-tracks elections to unionize workers is nothing more than a political payback to organized labor, former General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz said Tuesday.

"I think, look, the whole thing was voted in by a Democratic-controlled Senate. This is the Democratic Party paying back the unions for their support," he said on CNBC's 'The Kudlow Report.'

Lutz said it wasn't a surprise.

"Do we like it? No. Do we think it's a good thing? No," he said. "Will it make America more competitive? No."
