The American Supply Association is an active part of the effort to ensure the continued right of American workers to freely choose whether or not to be represented by a labor organization. The “Employee Free Choice Act,” i.e. Card Check, is one of organized labor’s top legislative priorities.
Card Check proposal, all a union would have to do to become a recognized
bargaining agent is persuade a simple majority of the workers to publicly and
openly sign a card indicating support for the union. Card Check
legislation would effectively eliminate workers’ ability to make the important
decision over union recognition in the privacy of a voting booth and mandates
compulsory, binding arbitration on both employees and the employer.
to Kent & O’Connor, ASA’s representatives in Washington, D.C., this issue
will come up immediately in the next Administration.To take
pro-active steps and promote our industry’s opposition to this legislation, ASA
is asking all of its members, especially those in key states, to contact
their elected officials in Washington in regards to this issue.
