Employee Free Choice Act Rally
Wednesday, February 20, 2008
4-6 pm
Lykes Gaslight Park (400 N. Tampa)
Tampa, Florida

Representative Kathy Castor speaking
sponsored by the West Central Florida Federation of Labor.

The Employee Free Choice Act would trigger automatic certification of private-employer unions upon the presentation of collective bargaining authorization cards (pledge cards) of a majority of the bargaining unit. This would eliminate the most common tactics employers use to avoid bargaining with unions -- delaying certification elections and using pressure tactics on employees to discourage voting for unions.
