The Employee Free Choice Act will:
1. Strengthen penalties against companies that coerce or intimidate employees trying to form unions and bargain;
2. Establish mediation and binding arbitration when the employer and workers cannot agree on a first contract; and
3. Enable employees to form unions when a majority signs authorization cards.
Sign the Online Card to help us reach our goal: 1 million signatures urging the new president and Congress to enact the Employee Free Choice Act.
This is also called the "Card Check" which will allow employees to form a collective unit without being harassed by an employer. At this time the process involves card signatures and then the NLRB will schedule an election normally several months after the initial drive has been completed. During the time lapse, employers harass the employees into rejecting the union through illegal practices and normally the use of outside "Union Busting" consultants. The Employee Free Choice Act will stop the bottom feeding consultants from tampering with the process of forming a collective barganing unit. That said, it is no wonder they have fought to keep this bill from becoming law.
