No to EFCA...

Folks should take some time to educate themselves about the EFCA. This is a dangerous, union developed, piece of legislation which will effectively eliminate any privacy, discussion and freedom regarding an individual's right to organize. Imagine your workplace placed under the bargaining agreement of a union, without a fair hearing or vote. Think it can't happen? Take a look at some of the targets outlined by the AFL-CIO, SEIU and others.

Subject: Action Alert: No to EFCA - the Time is Now



The time has come. The Employee Free Choice Act is here.

As Roll Call reported this morning, labor unions are staging a theatrical event on the Hill tomorrow, and EFCA is expected to be introduced in the House of Representatives this week. The preliminaries are over, this is the main event--and as we continue to hear from you--our economy can't afford a defeat.

Union leaders want to change the rules of how unions are recognized by encouraging legislators to do away with the proven practice of holding free and fair secret ballot elections. By forcing workers out of the voting booth and subjecting them to a public 'card check' scheme, the bill would take privacy, power, and choice away from America's workers.

Save the Secret Ballot, Save the Economy. Join our Virtual March on Washington, and join the fight.

Write to your Congressmen now and tell them to say No to EFCA and protect secret ballots for America's workers.

Democracy is great... except when it interferes with our plans of world domination.

Seriously, I don't know how anyone in their right mind would think that having your vote exposed, leaving you open to direct intimidation, would be a good thing....

Oh, Right Mind. These are unions we're talking about. Nevermind.

Democracy - kryptonite to unions.
