Carper to Oppose Employee Free Choice Act

Senator Tom Carper (D-DE) “announced that he would not support the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), as long as the controversial card-check provision was remained part of the proposed law,” the Delaware Employment Law Blog reports.

The card-check provision would enable a union to be certified as the employees’ exclusive bargaining agent based on a majority of signed authorization cards instead of through a traditional secret-ballot election. Carper denounced the card-check method, stating that a secret-ballot election is the fairest method of gauging whether employees truly want to be represented by a union.
