Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Lawyer Discusses Why EFCA Is A Concern

In a Q&A with The Oregonian, labor and employment lawyer Rich Meneghello discusses why he opposes card check. In addition to the effective end of the secret ballot, which he worries that “employers are concerned they’ll wake up one day to find a union certified without them even know it was going on,” Meneghello also highlights concern with the binding arbitration provision of EFCA. Under EFCA’s binding arbitration provision, workers will be unable to vote on a contract and forced to abide by terms dictated by a federal bureaucrat.
