Dog Bites Man/Republican Opposes EFCA

I'm sure this will surprise no one, but our congresscritter GT opposes the Employee Free Choice Act.
Thompson spoke out against the Employee Free Choice Act, which he claims removes the secret ballot process in considering whether to unionize a workplace.

"It's a job-killing measure," he said.

Thompson also criticized the measure for its binding-arbitration inclusion, which he said gives an outside party the ability to dictate contract terms.

Proponents of the measure claim it only raises the option of a secret ballot process, but more importantly, that it addresses good will negotiations through binding arbitration and increases sanctions on unfair labor practices.

I also wanted to commend the Sun Gazette, the paper that reported this, for at least stating the proponents position.
