Card Check Process Used by Union Organizers Ignites Fury at Indiana Plant
Union organizers are going to great lengths to get new members – including harassing and intimidating company employees until they vote to join.
The Employee Free Choice Act – known in Congress as the “card check” bill – calls for an easier system to allow employees to form, join, or assist labor organizations, but some workers say that the bill is giving unions the green light to use aggressive tactics to get them to sign up.
Under the bill, employees can request blank cards from an existing unions and request signatures on the card from employees. The legislation will allow companies to hold secret ballot elections to decide on unionization if 30 percent of employees sign the cards.
