Unionistas are wasting no time now that they’ve won the white house for a second term. They have created a petition calling on the President to bypass the constitutional process and enact EFCA by Executive Order. They are also demanding that Obama outlaw Right To Work laws (ironically, in the name of protecting individual rights), and enforce the stagnated Section 7 rights posting law. Here’s the wording of the petition:
we petition the obama administration to:
Sign into Law by Executive Order: EFCA as Originally Written; mandatory posting of NLRB Employee Rights; Prohibit RTW.
Popular support for the Employee Free Choice Act was over 70% when Congress had the chance to enact it. It is needed now more than ever to combat the abuses being suffered at the hands of CEO’s and Corporations. President Obama knows that Right to Work laws do not promote a healthy economy; in fact they do the exact opposite. A rising tide lifts all boats. When rights are hidden, stifled, and trampled upon it does very little to give people a helping hand out of poverty through their own hard work. To help them become aware of their Federally protected rights at the workplace, the National Labor Relations Board’s poster concerning Employee Rights under Section 7 of the Act should be a required posting at all jobsites.
