Businessman Argues for Employee Free Choice Act
- by Seth Michaels, AFL-CIO NOW BLOG
Diecedue responds to the baseless attacks against the Employee Free Choice Act and lays out in detail the three essential parts of the bill:
* Stronger penalties for bosses who abuse or fire workers trying to form a union.
* The guarantee of a first contract for newly recognized bargaining units.
* Requiring companies to recognize a union if a majority of employees indicate they want one.
As Diecedue points out, CEOs and top executives wouldn’t think of working without a contract, yet they’re trying to deny the same bargaining power to employees.
