The Employee No Choice Act

By April 16, 2007Labor Unions

NAM President John Engler has an opinion column in today’s Washington Times entitled, “Union Coercion.”

Under card check, there is no private choice — and no clear end to the election process. Union organizers can take as much time as they want to push someone into signing a card — and they can go into the employee’s home, with one, two, or a full cadre of friends.

In fact, union organizers don’t even have to ask all employees to sign a card — no card, no choice, no vote. And no end in sight to the card-check process. Imagine that workplace environment: continuous, day-after-day-after-day union organizing, becoming more aggressive and no doubt more coercive as the 50 percent (plus one) figure of signature cards gets closer.
