Labor Law Reform

The right to form and join trade unions is a basic human right and long-standing US policy; it is also a right affirmed by most religious denominations as essential for upholding human dignity. However, companies frequently launch massive, well-funded campaigns to fight organization efforts. The Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) would ensure that when a majority of employees in a workplace decide to form a union, they could do so without the harassment, intimidation, illegal firings, and other tactics that employers now use to block workers' free choice.
