Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

EFCA: Bad News, Even in Oregon

My colleague and blogmate Bret Jacobson here at the Center for Union Facts landed himself an op-ed in yesterday’s Eugene (OR) Register-Guard, explaining why the Employee Free Choice Act is such a bad deal for employees and their free choices:

Right now, our laws allow employees a secret-ballot election and choice when deciding to unionize or not. But the Employee Free Choice Act – successfully pushed through the House by Rep. George Miller, D-Calif. – would effectively ban elections and replace them with a method called “card check,” in which union organizers collect signatures on cards in public – like a petition, except not all on one sheet of paper.
