Strength in Numbers: On Our Way to One Million

One Million Strong for the Employee Free Choice ActWho’s losing out in this sputtering economy?

Not corporate CEOs. Too many of them have made sure to secure a golden parachute for themselves while workers face soaring healthcare costs, foreclosures, and an uncertain future.

The Employee Free Choice Act would help level the playing field and get our economy back on track. That's why last week we launched a huge campaign to get one million people to support this bill and tell Congress it’s time for change.

We're already at 20,695 signatures and we think we can reach 30,000 by Monday! We need you to be one of them. 

If you've already signed the petition, can you tell 10 friends about our campaign?

The Employee Free Choice Act would give more workers the chance to negotiate for better benefits, wages, and working conditions by forming unions.

And that will help all of us. There's strength in numbers, and as we build our collective muscle, we can raise living standards, improve health care, and stop corporate America's race to the bottom.

But some CEOs try to stop unions, preventing their workers from negotiating a contract. In fact, 30 percent of employers fire pro-union workers during union organizing drives. Of course, no CEO would agree to work without a contract. So why can’t their workers have the same rights?

It’s time to bring back some fairness. That's why we need one million voices supporting the Employee Free Choice Act. But a million people is a LOT of people. We won't reach our goal without YOUR friends and family.
 
Do you support this bill? Take one minute to sign our petition. Upload a photo while you're at it!

Anti-union groups are mounting a campaign to fight this bill. We can’t match our opponents dollar-for-dollar, but we can prevail if enough people rally to this important cause.

The economy should work for all of us, not just the privileged few. We can get there with your help.
