Union Workers Against Card Check

The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace — an organization, it should be noted, that opposes the Employee Free Choice Act — has released a McLaughlin & Associates poll showing opposition to card check legislation among union households. The poll also included a larger sample of voters. Its findings, according to a statement:

  • Three out of four voters (74%) oppose the “The Employee Free Choice Act”. Union households also strongly oppose the Employee Free Choice Act, 74% oppose to only 20% support. 
  • When given a more detailed description of the Employee Free Choice Act, nearly 9 out of 10 voters, 86%, feel the process should remain private and only 8% feel it should be public information.  Again, even union workers feel strongly that the process should be kept private, as 88% said private and only 8% said public. 
  • Four out of five voters, or 82%, favor having a federally supervised election as a means to “protect the individual rights of workers”.  The voters clearly see this as a basic right, especially given that only 11% of voters feel the card check would be the best way to protect the individual rights of workers.  Support increases to 85% among union households.
  • The majority (52% to 26%) of American voters believe that the Employee Free Choice Act is not good for job creation.  Even among union households, the plurality (48%) believes that the Employee Free Choice Act will cost America jobs. 
  • In the current economic climate, 52% of voters are particularly opposed to any measure that would risk jobs or job growth.
  • Further exemplifying the electorates’ distaste for the Employee Free Choice Act, 71% agreed that this legislation would be “unwise” and “risky”.  In today’s economic climate, the electorate has little confidence in the federal government’s ability to make such major business decisions. 

It would be interesting to see some of the precise wording, but it should be grist for the upcoming card check debate.

UPDATE: I look at the exact wording here and conclude it is wanting. Readers from liberal websites might want to check it out rather than simply take the word of people who can’t tell the difference between and article and a blog post.
