Workforce Freedom Initiative Responds to President’s Call for Card Check

Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 8:00pm

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Glenn Spencer, executive director of the Workforce Freedom Initiative at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement in response to today’s speech by the president in which he stated that, “we are going to keep on fighting to pass the Employee Free Choice Act”:

“We welcome the President’s call to rebuild our economy, but taking away the private ballot and imposing government-dictated union contracts on employers won’t help. Misguided bills like Card Check, overbearing regulations from the Department of Labor, and a slanted NLRB will only discourage America’s job creators from putting people back to work.”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing more than 3 million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region.
