SEIU petition to keep majority sign-up in Employee Free Choice Act

08.02.09

Hi there,

I wanted to write you about the recent news about the Employee Free Choice Act. The New York Times reported that the Senate is considering dropping majority sign-up from the Employee Free Choice Act.

I just signed a petition to Congress in support of majority sign-up. Can you please add you name?

Majority sign-up is based on a simple idea: if a majority of workers say they want a union, they should get a union. It’s the best way to make sure workers have a free and fair choice to join a union without intimidation or harassment.

We see that Wall St. is back to business as usual. Bank of America and Citigroup posted billions in profits today. Goldman Sachs made $38 million a day in the last three months, and is set to pay out record bonuses.

Corporate greed alive and well, despite billions in bailouts. Meanwhile, unemployment is still rising, and many working people are still struggling to get by in the rough economy.

Congress needs to support majority sign-up. Working people need to see who supports giving employees a truly free choice, and who supports letting greedy corporations make choices for their workers.
