ARLINGTON, Va.--An overwhelming majority of voters, including 74 percent of
surveyed union households, polled in a new survey oppose the Employee Free
Choice Act, known as "Card Check."
An even larger majority of all households surveyed - 86 percent - oppose the EFCA because it would eliminate the secret ballot process that workers now enjoy in union representation elections. These results, from a national survey released by the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, are the latest topics for discussion by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) at www.bizcentral.org/american-trucking-association.
