Employee Rights Act
Number of Co-Sponsors
Liberty for All's PositionLiberty For All supports the right of employees to make their own decisions regarding union membership and to do so free from extortion, intimidation, and/or coercion. By providing for a secret ballot election, employees can exercise their opinions without fear of retribution and through the regular voting provisions would have more opportunities to address how their funds were spent. This bill represents an important first step towards increasing transparency while protecting the rights of individual workers.
Current StatusThis bill was assigned to a congressional committee on November 14, 2013, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.
