Employee Free Choice Act petition

http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/Support_EFCA

This act would make it easier for employees to unionize if they want. Here are the main parts:
*union recognition by card-check, i.e. when majority of employees sign a union card, the union gets recognition. cuts off the time and bureaucracy of NLRB votes that take months or years
*allows first-contract arbitration if an agreement can't be reached in 90 days
*stronger Penalties for violations while employees are attempting to organize or obtain a first contract

This isn't just about whether or not you like unions. It's about whether or not you believe people have the right to unionize democratically in an efficient, clear process, without threat of firing or other intimidation.

If you believe that, then please spread the word on this.
