Rep. David Loebsack, Iowa DINO

Democrat wants to end secret-ballot union elections

A message to labor from the House of Representatives’ Committee on Education and Labor: On Feb. 14, HR 800, the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), was ordered favorably reported out of committee to the House by a vote of 26 to 19. Only one Iowan is on this committee: Voting Yes: David Loebsack (member of AFT Local 716)

The bill currently has 234 co-sponsors, more than enough to insure passage in the House, says committee chair Democrat George Miller.

EFCA could transform America. How? It would without a doubt signal the long-awaited opening of the most massive union organizing effort since 1947.
