Employee Free Choice Act and Arbitration
In recent weeks, corporate groups and executives have waged war to prevent workers from enjoying what CEOs take for granted: a contract. But the next battle is bound to show them for who they are: greedy people who will do anything to hold onto their power.
Anti-worker groups are now attacking the "first contract arbitration" portion of the Employee Free Choice Act. It seeks to stop employers from using endless foot-dragging against workers who have voted for a union, but have yet to secure a contract.
Their new line of attack is entirely hypocritical. Corporations use arbitration all the time, because for years, they've said it's a fast, inexpensive way to settle disputes.
Tell your members of Congress they need to choose their constituents over the corrosive power of greed.
