This Week: Do Your Part to Save Democracy

By February 26, 2007Labor Unions

This week, the House of Representatives is poised to deal a blow to secret ballot elections here at home. Congress is expected to vote on H.R. 800, the anti-democracy card check bill maybe as early as Wednesday. Here’s what you need to do:

  • If you don’t know who your Member of Congress is, click here to find out.
  • Click on this site. You’ll see a link at the top that says, “Show co-sponsors.” Click on it.
  • If your Member of Congress is on the list of co-sponsors (and thus likely a big recipient of union PAC money), please click here to send them a message to urge them to get their names off of this bill and to not support it in any way.
  • If your Member of Congress is not a co-sponsor, also click here to urge them to stand firm in opposition to the bill.
  • Please take the time to weigh in. Much is at stake. In their haste to protect the unions, the majority of the House of Representatives is poised to do damage to a fundamental principle of democracy.
