Help unions broaden their right to organize

Our friends at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) are leading the fight to protect our workers’ right to organize unions, but they need your help. Right now, the laws governing the right to organize are unfairly skewed towards the big corporations. The corporations know that a strong union presence will guarantee health care and a living wage, and of course management doesn’t want that. Here’s how we can help. There is legislation in Congress right now that will improve the situation. Its called “Card Check Recognition,” and if it passes, our unions will have a fair chance to organize in the workplace. Please visit http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/seiufreedom and sign the online petition. This is our chance as citizens to stand up for the workers that keep our country moving.

Thank you for posting the blog about the card-check bill. Because you have posted it, I will gladly contribute to your campaign. It is time the the right to organize and participate in a union be given the same standing as any other civil right.
