Miers Law Firm Is Anti-Union Business Advisor

The law firm that Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers belonged to before joining the Bush administration in 2001 offers a comprehensive "union avoidance" strategy for businesses.

The Locke Liddell & Sapp website details services to prevent businesses from being organized:

" . . . we handle all matters that arise under the National Labor Relations Act, including NLRB elections, anti-union campaign materials, collective bargaining, arbitrations, strikes and picketing . . .For union-free companies, we provide union-avoidance advice and strategies in emerging situations."

While it is not known whether Miers personally provided anti-union services, she was a co-managing partner of the firm and was elected its president in 1996. She began working at what is now Locke Liddell & Sapp in 1972.

It's the unfortunate truth that most of the bigger law firms offer union-avoidance services... the filthy bastards. Not trying to defend meirs...i'm sure she's as anti-worker as they come.
