Your Rights on the Job

Employee Free Choice Act

The Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 800, S. 1041), supported by a bipartisan coalition in Congress, would level the playing field for workers and employers and help rebuild America’s middle class. It would restore workers’ freedom to choose a union by:

  • Establishing stronger penalties for violation of employee rights when workers seek to form a union and during first-contract negotiations
  • Providing mediation and arbitration for first-contract disputes
  • Allowing employees to form unions by signing cards authorizing union representation
