Re: “GOP will get ugly about the Employee Free Choice Act

The National Labor Relations Act provides for the forming or joining of a union as well as an employees choice not to. It also spells out the enforcement for those that break the act. We don't need another piece of legislation that is obviously written to favor unions. It is not written for employees who want to join or form a union and it is certainly not written for businesses. This act provides unions with an easier path to increase membership. What America needs is for unbiased involvement and enforcement from the NLRB under current laws.
The single largest reason for the decline in union membership is that unions have forgotten that they represent employees. They have replaced that thought process with one that says the employees are there for their benefit and that businesses are the enemy. The customer isn't even in the equation. Instead of seeing what they can change or improve to encourage increased membership, unions have turned to Congress to help them increase their membership.
This is a pro-union act that is pay back for their political support over the years. It unfairly targets and increases penalties on business for their infractions but says nothing of increased penalties for union infractions. It removes the secret ballot option if 50% of the signature cards are gained. Look at the second sentence of Section 2(a)(6)of the EFCA wording on the AFL-CIO website.
The secret ballot election should remain the means for employees to vote for or against union representation. This is a one sided piece of legislation that will wind up being bad for all concerned.
