Scott – “That One” – Gets a Raise and Benefits…In His Dream

The Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), when signed into law after Barack Obama becomes president, will:

  • allow employees to form unions by signing cards authorizing union representation on a job
  • establish stronger penalties for businesses that violate employees’ rights when workers seek to form a union and during first contract negotiations
  • provide mediation and arbitration for first time contract disputes.

The EFCA is important to American workers, because, in the words of Senator Edward Kennedy, it will “level the playing field between management and labor” when it comes to forming a union. This is a tremendous point, especially when we consider that 60 million workers say they would join a union if they had the opportunity.

There are several websites that provide helpful information about the Employee Free Choice Act for those who want to know more about it.

One is the AFL-CIO’s website. On their EFCA page you will find a definition of the EFCA as well as be able to read the EFCA text. There are videos of lawmakers and workers expressing their views about the Act, along with a tremendous amount of other information that will help you to better understand and advocate for the passage of the Act.

Another website is that of American Rights At Work. America Rights At Work says that the EFCA will help American workers get better health care, job security and benefits.

The Service Employees International Union amd Employee Free Choice websites both have information about the Act and some very interesting videos that inform, entertain and promote the passage of the EFCA.

So, whether you’re in favor of the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act or not, or you just want to be know about it, check out the websites above.

In the meantime, enjoy this EFCA promotional video.
