ABSTRACT
The article comments on a U.S. legislation called the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), which has passed the House and currently is on the calendar in the Senate. The EFCA would replace the current system of labor unions' secret-ballot organizing elections with openly signed card checks. It would also force employers and newly organized unions into binding arbitration if they were unable to settle on a collective bargaining agreement within 90 days from the start of bargaining.
