    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.
