  • Biden Votes on EFCA, citing “importance of labor”

    Posted on Jun 26, 2007 by J. Justin Wilson

    As the Senate votes to close debate on the misnamed Employee Free Choice Act (literally as I type), today’s Congressional Quarterly quotes Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Joe Biden saying that although he’ll miss more and more votes in his bid to become president, he wouldn’t dare miss the vote on EFCA: “I will be completely […]

  • EFCA: The Money Behind The Rhetoric

    Posted on by Jon Berry

    The National Republican Senatorial Committee has put up a new video that begins with Ted Kennedy’s “endorsement” of Union Facts and continues on to list the money handed over by Big Labor to the leading politicians supporting the anti-democratic Employee Free Choice Act. Check it out!

  • EFCA: Castro Speaks!

    Someone out there, labeled a pro-business Democrat, has followed up on our ads likening proponents of the Employee Free Choice Act to dictators who want to get rid of secret ballot elections. And a good job that someone has done, too! It’s always good to poke fun at the absurdity in this debate — even […]

    The Senate is finally expected to try a procedural vote on the whimsically misnamed “Employee Free Choice Act” today. Yippee, say the senators, we’re trying to deny workplace democracy!

    It’s not often you get a voice-over from a U.S. Senator. But last week our ad — using an exact quote from one of his supporters — provoked Sen. Ted Kennedy into reading our ad aloud to a crowd of union activists (which, by the looks of it, consisted mainly of staff). Then, he tore […]

  • EFCA: By George, I Think He’s Got It!

    In a battle of wills Georges today, Congressman George Miller took to task Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will for his journalistic broadside against Miller’s ridiculously named “Employee Free Choice Act”. As we’ve pointed out in full-page ads (and as Will mentioned in his column), Miller has previously extolled the use of secret ballots for recognizing […]

  • EFCA: The Union Facts Empire Strikes Back (Even More!)

    Posted on by Bret Jacobson

    The Center for Union Facts today continued its assault on Big Labor’s scheme to deny working Americans a personal, private vote when they’re deciding whether to join a union. Today we ran full-page ads in The New York Times and USA TODAY telling the world that the public doesn’t support this union scheme. This brings […]
