The Union Dues Extortion and Coercion Act (aka "Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA)" or “Card Check”)

The liberals are at it again. From American Solutions:

The top legislative priority for organized labor and their allies in Congress is the so-called Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), also known as “Card Check.” EFCA is an enormous power grab by big labor bosses that would strip workers of their right to decide by private ballot whether to join a union, and their right to freely negotiate their contract. Instead of a secret ballot election, workers would be asked to publicly sign cards in front of union organizers, potentially subjecting them to harassment or intimidation.
This will also cause a loss of an additional 600,000 jobs in the first year alone. Dan Kotman writes:
According to a recent study by noted economist Dr. Anne Layne-Farrar, An Empirical Assessment of the Employee Free Choice Act: The Economic Implications, every three workers coerced into joining a union under Card Check, one job will be eliminated.

We need to prevent this bill from ever getting to the president's desk. B. Hussein Obama has already promised to pass 'Card Check'. Here's what he promised labor bosses yesterday:
President Barack Obama told AFL-CIO union leaders Tuesday in a videotaped address that the controversial Employee Free Choice Act will pass, signaling his full backing for legislation that makes union organizing easier.

"We will pass the Employee Free Choice Act," President Obama told more than 100 top labor officials in a closed-door meeting at the labor federation's winter gathering in Miami, according to people at the meeting.

The bill would make it easier for unions to recruit workers because it would let them join unions simply by signing cards rather than through secret-ballot elections in which companies can campaign against the union.

Do your part to stop this by signing the petition against the "The Union Dues Extortion and Coercion Act" (aka "Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA)" or “Card Check”).
