10. If Taft-Hartley were repealed, then a Union could vote to join a general strike,

And union officials could sanction it. And it would be legal; the union would not be risking any kind decertification or discipline by the NLRB.

True wildcat strikes would still be unprotected as per the NLRA of 1935, but so what. Union-sanctioned political strikes would be a powerful force for change. We need it imho.

It would be a lot better than what we have now, where if a union wants to join in a general strike, current law makes it impossible for union officials to support it.

Anybody making a list of demands please make sure to add repeal the taft-hartley act to your list.
