Mainers for Employee Freedom Steering Committee member Godfrey Wood has a great OpEd on the deceptively-named Employee Free Choice Act in today’s Portland Press-Herald:
The private-ballot vote to organize has been working for decades. It has protected workers from intimidation and harassment and has given credibility to election results in the workplace. EFCA would reverse our long-standing practice of private-ballot votes and trample the rights of our nation’s workers.
This harmful legislation should not become law. We must alert our elected officials that EFCA is a bad idea and their help in opposing EFCA could make all the difference.
Together, we can broadcast our support for workers on the job and play an important role in protecting their right to a private ballot.
