With a $10- to 20-million ad campaign designed to confuse voters about the Employee Free Choice Act (“EFCA”) underway, a bit of clarification is required.
During a debate on the House floor last year, Speaker Nancy Pelosi had this to say (courtesy, MissLaura at DailyKos):
“The Employee Free Choice Act is the most important labor law reform legislation of this generation. But this legislation is about more than labor law: it is about basic labor rights, about the rule of the majority free from intimidation, and about protecting jobs.
It is a guarantee – when a majority of workers say they want a union, they will get a union.”
