May 22: Media Roundup & New Allies

A number of compelling editorial pieces published in recent weeks make a strong case for the Employee Free Choice Act: 

  • New York Times columnist Bob Herbert discussed in an op-ed how crucial the freedom to form unions is to raising workers out of poverty, referencing the recommendations made by the Center for American Progress Task Force on Poverty in its recent report.

  • Professor Peter Dreier of Occidental College, and Kelly Candaele, a trustee of the Los Angeles Community College District, co-authored a fantastic piece in The Chronicle of Higher Education,, and AlterNet  about how all working people will gain from passage of the Employee Free Choice Act.

  • Professor Thomas Kochan of MIT argued for why workers need their collective bargaining power strengthened in a special "Ending Poverty in America" edition of The American Prospect .

  • Professor James Brudney of Ohio State University and author of the American Constitution Society issue brief on the power of neutrality and card check agreements, served as the "pro" voice in an Employee Free Choice Act debate in the editorial pages of The Columbus Dispatch.

A growing number of organizations outside of the labor movement care about workers' rights and the Employee Free Choice Act from the American Library Association to US Action.  Learn more about our allies here
