Employee ‘Free Choice’ Act
I have previously posted about my concerns regarding the Employee Free Choice Act. One of my major concerns is the fact that, if the proposal is adopted, there would no longer be secret ballots to determine if a union would be organized in the workplace or not.
The sponsors of the union would simply have to get a majority of workers to sign a card saying they want a union. Under such a system they would be free to do so publicly and to post names of who has and has not signed up for the union and would be free to apply any pressure they saw fit to get them to sign.
I’ve seen a couple ads that I think say it pretty well, one of which comes from a pretty liberal source.
