The Case Against the Employee Free Choice Act

by Richard A. Epsteinvia Hoover Institution Press
Friday, July 10, 2009

Epstein shows how the three major components of EFCA—the card check method of union recognition, compulsory interest arbitration, and increased penalties for employer unfair labor practices—will only exaggerate the flaws of the current system and undermine the long-term set of labor practices. He presents powerful and principled reasons to explain why the decline of union membership has little to do with the supposed flaws of the current system and everything to do with globalization and technology. In addition, he demonstrates the significant constitutional challenges to both the card check and arbitration provisions.
