The so-called Employee Free Choice Act, aka “Card Check”, would take away numerous rights and protections currently afforded to workers employed at companies where unions are actively seeking to organize. The bill would remove workers’ rights to a federally supervised private ballot election.
Instead, workers would be asked to sign cards in front of organizers and colleagues, potentially subjecting them to harassment or intimidation.
Besides risky “card check” schemes, EFCA has other components that hurt employers and ultimately their employees. It would require mandatory government arbitration in the event that unions stonewall contract negotiations. Employers would also be frozen out of the ability to make staff changes (including raises and promotions) in the event that a union wants to organize workers.
