Employee Free Choice Act Introduced In Congress


The so-called “Employee Free Choice Act” was introduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, March 10, 2009. The bill was sponsored by Rep. George Miller (D-CA) and Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA).

If passed, the EFCA will permit unions to organize a group of employees without there ever being a secret ballot election, or an opportunity for the employer to counter union tactics which might be misleading or coercive. A union could get certified by presenting to the National Labor Relations Board cards signed by a majority of the workers it wants to represent.
