ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the threat posed by the Employee Free Choice Act, which would remove barriers on certifying labor unions and organization, to businesses in Nevada. Cheryl Blomstrom of the National Federation of Independent Business believes that the bill will shut up employers from the process of unionization and will place no limits on where unions could be organized. The bill will eliminate the secret-ballot measures and require the U.S. National Relations Board to certify a bargaining unit once majority of workers have signed cards.
