Debunking the Hype Against The Employee Free Choice Act
By Maurice Whitehurst
The opponents of EFCA say the act takes away the secret ballot. This assertion makes the point that choosing ought to be a private matter. The peculiar thing is they do this by telling you what to choose publicly.
The unrestricted ability to choose ought to reside with the employee. Therefore every accommodation ought to be satisfied with respect to securing this freedom. If the purpose of the provision is to encourage and to protect the free flow of choice without intimidation then there seems to be a better way which is provided by the EFCA. If the goal is to obtain secrecy then we should all stay silent.
