Workers from Across Nation Lobby Congress to Get Economy Back on Track with Employee Free Choice Act
Date:3/10/2009

Rep. Miller, Sen. Harkin introduce bill to make it easier for workers to bargain with employers for better wages and healthcare

WASHINGTON, March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, Congressman George Miller (D-CA), chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, and Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) introduced the Employee Free Choice Act, a bill to make it easier for workers to bargain with their employees for better wages and healthcare. At the same time, hundreds of workers from across the country descended on Washington to lobby their own Members of Congress on the importance of the bill. The workers, who represented more than 30 states and a number of unions, related their personal stories of being fired or harassed when they attempted to form a union, in addition to how forming a union could improve their lives and the products and services they provide.

They're working harder than ever before, yet they're not able to share in the prosperity they helped create," said Anna Burger, SEIU Secretary-Treasurer. "To really fix this economy, we must rebuild the middle class. The solution is simple: create good jobs that support a family, so they buy more products and put money back into our economy. That's what the Employee Free Choice Act will do."

Congress is expected to take up the legislation, which has the support of President Obama, Vice President Biden, Secretary Solis and majorities in both houses of Congress, sometime this session.

The Employee Free Choice Act seeks to accomplish three simple goals:

  • It restores the option of "majority sign-up," in addition to elections, to ensure that workers, not employers decide how to form a union. That is, when a majority of workers sign cards saying they want to form a union,
