Latest News... URGENT ALERT -- Pres. Obama declares "we will pass the Employee Free Choice Act"

As reported in this morning's Wall Street Journal, President Obama told a closed-door meeting of top union officials that "[w]e will pass the Employee Free Choice Act."  As proposed, the Act will bring card check elections and thereby deprive employees of the right to a secret ballot vote on the issue.  Most likely, the legislation will be introduced in the Senate sometime this month or next.  A top union official at the meeting predicted that the Act will become law within the next 4 or 5 months.

It is critical to prepare now for these changes.  All employers should start training their supervisors on matters relating to unionization.  Employers should also start educating their employees about the risks of the EFCA and the company's position on unionization.
