Labor Bill Could End Secret Ballot Vote

Ad Feedback

Congressional leaders have introduced the Employee Free Choice Act in the House and Senate.

The act could end the secret ballot vote for employees considering forming a union and allow union leaders to solicit cards with employee signatures instead.

The bill has major support in the Democratic party and is expected to pass a House vote.

Critics of the legislation tell CBN News the lack of a secret ballot will bully employees into joining a union.

"This is a very partisan sort of political back scratching kind of bill. It is something the labor unions have pushed because they have dwindling membership," a critic said.

The Senate is expected to take up the Employee Free Choice Act after easter.
