According to a recent poll commissioned by the Center for Union Facts (CUF) and conducted by the Opinion Research Corporation, 82% of non-unionized employees do not want their jobs to be unionized!
âItâs no wonder unions are desperate to have the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) passed by congress and signed into law by the president,â stated Stephen Cabot, Chairman of the Cabot Institute of Labor Relations as he was addressing one of his nationally popular labor relations survival seminars. âThe EFCA will make it extremely easy for unions to organize workers, for it does not permit management to educate workers about unions, and it calls for brief election periods and binding arbitration for first contracts. In effect, government bureaucrats will impose workplace terms, including salaries, benefits, hours, etc on companies throughout the country. Those bureaucrats can impose unrealistic financial burdens on companies, thus making them incapable of competing with foreign-based companies.
âAnd politicians in Congress, indebted to unions, will continue to support the EFCA; it is the only way that union organizers can win new members. Once it does become law, the EFCA will, in effect, drive millions of American workers into the confining box of union membership where their dues will be used to support political agendas that they may be against. One can see that rather than being a populist movement, increased unionization is a cause embraced and promoted by Washington elites and union officials,â added Mr. Cabot.
The CUF poll provides strong evidence that there is no national movement amongst workers to join unions. In fact, when asked about joining unions, workers find the prospect of absolutely no interest to them.
