The Employee Free Choice Act: Q&A

I thought you should see this.

The Employee Free Choice Act, supported by a bipartisan coalition in Congress, would enable working people to bargain for better benefits, wages and working conditions by restoring workers’ freedom to choose for themselves whether to join a union. It would:

  • Remove current obstacles to employees who want collective bargaining.
  • Guarantee that workers who can choose collective bargaining are able to achieve a contract.
  • Allow employees to form unions by signing cards authorizing union representation.
