Protecting Private Ballots

The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace supports efforts to protect federally supervised private ballots for working Americans as they decide whether to join a union.

Knowing they can no longer hope to sneak “card check” through the legislature, Big Labor is pushing its agenda through small actions—but your Members of Congress need to hear that this is not acceptable.
