Labor unions long to end the secret ballot. The Employee Rights Act (ERA) would sack them before that bad idea gets out of the pocket. The ERA guarantees employees’ right to a secret ballot vote.
That’s because voting — like some other things — should be done in private. Super Bowl viewers will learn more about that on Sunday when they see the latest ad from the Center for Union Facts. Take a look:
Organized labor would rather have one of its organizers looking over an employee’s shoulder when he or she votes. We often hear about the intimidation and confusion that results from a “card check” unionization campaign, and this problem is repeated over and over again every day.
The ERA ensures that a secret ballot will be taken when employees decide whether or not they want to join a union and in other labor actions, including strike votes. And union households overwhelmingly support the principles of the ERA.So when you’re watching the game on Sunday, be ready to talk to your friends about the Employee Rights Act and how organized labor wants to invade your private time.
