Should it be enacted?

I notice a anti-union tendency on this board. Even from the Democrats. This is a good bill that will make it easier to form unions without pressure from the companies. I hope that the current round of UAW bashing doesn’t jeopardize its passing.
[quote]The Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 800, S. 1041), supported by a bipartisan coalition in Congress, would enable working people to bargain for better wages, benefits and working conditions by restoring workers’ freedom to choose for themselves whether to join a union. It would:
* Establish stronger penalties for violation of employee rights when workers seek to form a union and during first-contract negotiations. * Provide mediation and arbitration for first-contract disputes (PDF). * Allow employees to form unions by signing cards authorizing union representation.
