Sign Online Petition to promote "Freedom Not Fear"
February 28th, 2009 by Saul Anuzis
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, workers would be asked to publicly sign cards in front of union organizers, potentially subjecting them to harassment or intimidation. EFCA is a threat to workers' rights.
Our effort is not anti-union; our effort is anti-EFCA.
Our internal polling shows that the American people are firmly on the side of supporting a worker's right to a secret ballot election. In fact, the tri-partisan agreement to defend this right is overwhelming, as 77% of Republicans, 82% of Democrats, and 79% of independents believe in protecting private ballots. Support for private ballots is so broad it also spanned union households and every subgroup examined, including majorities of every age, race, geographic group and both genders.
Join us here to sign our online petition to promote "freedom not fear" in the work place.
We, therefore, petition the U.S. Congress to ensure that every worker has the right to a secret ballot when deciding whether to organize a union, as well as the right to ratify the contract terms of their employment, rather than be forced to accept a contract through binding arbitration.
Please follow this link and sign our online petition…send it to your friends and neighbors and help save jobs in America.
The new leadership of the RNC is looking very promising and needs our uniting behind them starting now!
Unions got their start in Flint Michigan, to my memory and it has been a tool of the worker to obtain a fair days wage for a fair days work. I as an conservative American do not see unions as bad, but sometimes lacking ethics, like protecting those who will not work. But to make it so that one has to live in fear of management or union jacking is not in our best interest as a people. Please pass this on and get everyone to do so and to go and vote in the petition.
Unions were responsible for creating the middle class we now have today. By ganging up on them blaming unions for the big three crisis is not wise, but destructive. Protect the American worker and stop the attack on unions. Attack the real reason we have this fiscal crisis, the lack of jobs, manufacturing jobs. Protect the American worker by stopping this Employee Free Choice Act keeping the balloting private and then follow up on what the RNC comes up with next.
