NAM Adopts Resolution Against Card Check

AVENTURA, Fla.—The board of directors of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has adopted a resolution in opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA).

The resolution stated that “private, secret ballot elections are the cornerstone of the democratic process.” It also cited a "recent economic analysis" that showed that the card-check legislation would cause 600,000 American jobs to be lost.

The resolution also criticized the arbitration provisions in the legislation “that would effectively eliminate an employer’s ability to make the critical economic decisions that are tied directly to manufacturers’ ability to compete and create jobs.”

The NAM resolution branded the legislation “a direct assault on free enterprise” that would “undermine employers’ ability to respond to changing economic conditions.”
