The take no prisoners EFCA campaign

The unions are pushing hard for passage of the Employee Free Choice Act. For the uninitiated it would allow employees to form a union simply by signing a card. When the majority of employees have signed the card the union is formed. Thing is, this eliminates the secret ballot because if you know who has signed the card you also know by extension who hasn't, leaving those people open for intimidation.

If that wasn't bad enough the unions are now lobbying for companies that take bailout money to be prohibited from lobbying against EFCA. Not only do these people want to eliminate the secret ballot, they also want to restrict free speech.

Whatever it takes to win, apparently.
