Denying the Secret Ballot

A piece of federal legislation, deceptively entitled the Employee Free Choice Act, "would replace secret ballot elections overseen by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) with a 'card check' process in which employees would be forced to make their choices out in the open, in front of union organizers and fellow employees who support unionization, making them vulnerable to threats and other pressure tactics," according to a U.S. Chamber of Commerce press release.

The Chamber opposes the bill.
