USAS for the EFCA

Penn State United Students Against Sweatshops is hosting a rally in support of the Employee Free Choice Act on Friday March 27, 2009 at 4pm in front of Old Main. This is from their [new and improved] Facebook page,
We will have labor leaders from the AFL-CIO, SEIU, Steelworkers, and both state-wide and national EFCA organizers speaking at this rally!! It is going to be huge!

The Employee Free Choice Act will help restore America's middle class and the economy by ensuring working that they have the option of forming a union. The current labor law is broken and is in need of an extraordinary remedy: EFCA

The areas covered by EFCA are:
~ Fining employers who illegally harass or firing union-supporting workers.
~ Provide mediation/arbitration for contract negotiations
~ Provide workers with the CHOICE of how they form their union: via card check or secret ballot elections. In quoting President Leo ___ of the Steelworkers "Of the 70 industrialized nations in the world we are the only one that gives that choice to employers."

It's time to make the law work for us! It is time to make the economy work for us! It is time for the Employee Free Choice Act!

As you know, Graham doesn't support this bill. Go tell him what you think.
