$10 Million Campaign to Support Employee Rights Act
The ad is part of a $10 million campaign by the Center for Union Facts in support of the Employee Rights Act, a bill introduced by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.).

The campaign, which launched with some radio spots last year but is getting into high gear this year, will also include ads on cable TV starting next week. Right now, it is a purely informational effort, said CUF executive director Rick Berman, but he didn't rule out future lobbying.
"This country needs to update labor laws to give employees more democratic rights on the job," Berman told the Alley.
