That’s why the SEIU and Big Labor support efforts to eliminate the secret ballot from union elections, instead preferring to coerce workers into signing away their rights.

The bill, called the Employee ‘Forced’ Choice Act (EFCA), gives employees neither freedom nor choice. Instead, it gives the SEIU and union organizers the right to intimidate and torment workers into providing signatures. And once the collective bargaining unit is formed, within weeks, unless an agreement is reached, the federal government will mandate contract terms on the worker and business alike.

Where American workers are concerned, these tactics and policies threaten their standard of living, workplace peace and, perhaps and most importantly, their jobs.

Instead of looking to put another tool in the pockets of unions through EFCA, Congress and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) should protect employees from the intimidation tactics that the SEIU prefers and exploits.

The fact is, if you take away those tactics, the SEIU has very little left. As they say in their campaign manual, “it is not enough to be right. You need might as well.”
