5. I was fired for union organizing in 1980 NLRB case # 17-CA-9763 online

I'm AFSCME BTW.

My case file at the NLRB: http://www.nlrb.gov/shared_files/Board%20Decisions/261/...

I think you need to do some research. EFCA doesn't take away the private ballot. Currently the EMPLOYER has the choice to accept card check, or demand a private ballot. AT&T, Harley Davidson, and other big name companies have accepted chard check and stayed neutral while workers organize.

Who holds the power in threatening workers? The company can illegally fire, say we will move to someplace else, etc... What power does a union thug have?

Every CEO in America has a contract with the board of directors. Shouldn't workers have a contract too?

Look at this list of organizations that have endorsed EFCA: http://www.aflcio.org/joinaunion/voiceatwork/efca/allie...


To see a union member swallow the right wing lie told by people like Rush is way more than discouraging. Need I say more?


Read the act for yourself and prove me wrong: # Read the text of the Employee Free Choice Act: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.1409 :
