A growing, bipartisan coalition of policymakers supports the Employee Free Choice Act, proposed legislation that would ensure that workers have a free choice and a fair chance to form a union. Simply put, the Employee Free Choice Act will allow workers to once again choose to form unions without the fear of being fired.
The legislation would:
Give workers a fair and direct path to form unions through majority sign-up
Help employees secure a contract with their employer in a reasonable period of time
Toughen penalties against employers who violate their workers' rights.
Congress Holds the Cards...
This battle will be won or lost in the Senate. Call or write to thank your members if they are
co-sponsors of the Employee Free Choice Act... If not, encourage them to support it.
American Rights at Work just launched the first TV advertisement since Senator Specter switched party affiliations. Our ad asks the Senator to do the right thing and support the Employee Free Choice Act. It makes it clear that the debate on the Employee Free Choice presents a choice: help working people, or help the corporations that drove this economy out of balance.
American Rights at Work is launching a new, hard-hitting ad to support the Employee Free Choice Act. "Greed" exposes the self-interest behind corporate opponents of the bill, and will air nationwide on cable and broadcast beginning today.
