Anti-EFCA rally in Harrisburg, Stonewall Democrats Endorse Card-Check

Mitt Romney's front group, the Workplace Fairness Institute, organized an anti-Employee Free Choice Act Rally in Harrisburg yesterday. The reports did not mention how many people were in attendance nor how many of the attendees were actually working people, but it did say that the leaders from the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce were there. Romney is trotting out the false idea that the Employee Free Choice Act would "impose on the workers of America a process that would remove from them the most fundamental right, the right to vote by a secret ballot."

Under the Employee Free Choice Act workers would still have the ability to call of National Labor Relations Board election but they could also choose majority sign-up as a means of getting organized. More importantly, the employer would no longer be the one who decides whether workers will be voluntarily recognized or a union or if the have to go through an election, the workers would be able to decide.

The San Diego Stonewall Democrats endorsed the Employee Free Choice Act following the new lead of the new Shared Agenda project.
