Congress may be on recess, but NOW is the perfect time to encourage your Representatives to support the Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 1409, S. 560).The Employee Free Choice Act will give millions of American workers the opportunity to choose to become a part of a union. Nationwide, 16.1 million workers in 2008 belonged to unions and were able to bargain for increased benefits, protected wages, and better working conditions. Passing the Employee Free Choice Act will help to ensure that the future of workers' rights is in American workers' hands - not their employers.

The next phase is the effort to reconcile the Senate and the House versions of this bill. Negotiators are hoping to seal agreement TODAY after making good progress on the first round of closed-door talks, so we need to keep up the pressure with your phone calls.
