Card check fight heads to airwaves

January 27, 2009

From Curt Kipp,
Oregon Association of Nurseries,

With a new Congress now in session, pro-union advocates are taking to the airwaves with a campaign promoting the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). This proposal, often called the “card-check bill,” would allow union organizers to represent workplaces in which they can get 50 percent plus one of the employees to sign a card favoring union representation. There is no shortage of coverage to be found on the matter, including this article that explains some of the concerns small businesses have. Expect to hear further debate on the proposal this year.

There seems to be a litmus test brewing. Any proposed legislation that comes out of Washington incorporating the words “free” and “choice”. First FOCA, now EFCA. Seems they are about anything but life & liberty.

No one is making a free choice when your right to a private vote is taken away.
