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

this legislation levels the playing field so they have a fair chance to do so;
  • It creates meaningful penalties for employers who break the law to harass or fire workers;
  • It ensures that workers have a fair chance at winning a contract guaranteeing their wages and benefits.
  • All day Tuesday, workers shared their stories of forming unions with their Members of Congress and participated in a hearing from the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) committee on the importance of unions in building the middle class.

    Testifying before Congress, SEIU 32BJ member Kelly Badillo related how his union helped him and his family get back on their feet in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 tragedy. "My story exemplifies that businesses and unions can work together for the benefit of hardworking Americans like me. My daughters are grown and have jobs of their own, but I can only hope they can enjoy a strong voice on the workplace like I have had," said Badillo.

    Last week, the Center for Economic Policy Research, an independent research organization for economic and social issues, released a report showing that the number of workers who were illegally fired when they tried to form a union had risen sharply in the past decade. In 2007, the most recent year for which data is available, 30 percent of union election campaigns had an illegal firing.

    With 2 million members, SEIU is the fastest-growing union in North America. Focused on uniting workers in three sectors to improve their lives and the services they provide, SEIU is the largest health care union, including hospitals, nursing homes, and home care; the largest property services union, including building cleaning and security; and the second largest public employee union.
