Everything about this bill is anti-worker. What the sponsor doesn’t mention is the fact that this repeals a law that prevented employers from firing or punishing workers for joining a union, forming a union, or otherwise organizing within the workplace. If passed, if an Atlasian worker so much as dares to join a union to advocate for their better wages and working conditions, they stand at risk of losing their job. This proposal attacks farm workers by excluding them from the NLRA of 1935 and denies them all rights and privileges that said law affords. If you want to protect workers, the Senate should vote down this delusive bill.

24 hours to object. Senator, do you wish for all these amendments to be added? It seems like by introducing them separately you want just one, not all 3 at once.

I’d like a vote to be held on each of them. So the objection period should cover my amendment extending the implementation date.

Respectfully, can Senator WD draft a single amendment to be voted on?

No. I have every right to offer amendments, granted they’re constitutional, related to the bill, and not frivolous. All of my amendments meet that criteria.

Indeed they do. However, multiple separate amendments impede Senate business. It would be best for a single amendment to be devised here.

Voting on amendments is Senate business.

I’m old enough to remember WD coming down hard on other Senators trying to clog the queue with cosmetic amendments.

(And strangely enough, I actually like one of these amendments! But the other two are the literal definition of frivolous that he used the last time he was PPT and posting these all at once is a pretty clear sign that not all of them, at minimum, are made in good faith without intent to gum up Senate proceedings.)

Well, that isn’t really my intention. I suppose you can make the case  for the first, but I don’t know how you can argue that substantive changes to the bill, as #2 and #3 make, are frivolous.

Nonetheless I leave my amendments as is for the Senate to take a look at and vote on. More voting and debate is a good thing, folks.

Wait, I’m interested in hearing this.

How exactly is #3 a substantive change?

Doubling the voting power of union officials on public limited company’s board of directors and further strengthening the voice organized labor has in the workplace is quite meaningful, I’d like to think.

I still fail to see what the supposed “controversy” is…Senators are allowed to offer multiple amendments. Is it that our PPT doesn’t want to do his job?

The amendments will be considered frivolous unless they are redone and will not be considered as it stands.

There is nothing frivolous about these amendments, you just don’t want to do your job.

Pursuant to Article 3, Section 1, I object to the decision and motion to overrule the PPT.

Second the motion. Amazingly appalling behavior here from the PPT - do your job, man.

^Just to clarify, we should not be moving to any amendment votes until the vote to overrule the PPT’s decision is held.

I call order in the chamber. Mr. WD your comments are not of candor.

Not only have you skipped over two of my amendments, but you have also skipped over Mr. R’s amendment. Seems like you can’t handle simple criticism.
