How Unions Will Manipulate Workers Using Card Check

Liberals are introducing the misnamed Employee Free Choice Act [1] today on Capitol Hill. The legislation would effectively eliminate workers’ rights to a secret ballot vote on joining a union [2]. Heritage’s James Sherk has done extensive research on card check, including a new paper that outlines why the bill would create government-run workplaces [2].

Last month at a Heritage event [3], former UFCW Local 700 Organizing Director Rian Wathen described how unions will creatively manipulate workers into signing union cards if EFCA takes away their right to a secret vote.

Would you realize that by signing this pamphlet you legally decided to unionize your workplace?
