Call the Senate for the Employee Free Choice Act

Soaring health care costs. Foreclosures on the rise. An uncertain future. So how can we turn around our economy?

When more folks can negotiate for better wages, health care, and working conditions by joining a union, things get better for all of us.

That's why hundreds of state leaders are in Washington DC today, fighting for the Employee Free Choice Act - so workers can fix our economy from the bottom up.

We need to make our voices heard on Capitol Hill. Can you join us in calling your senators right now?

Just call 1-866-311-3405 and you'll be connected to your senator's office. Ask your senator to support the Employee Free Choice Act.

Call 1-866-311-3405 now.

When you're done, click here to let us know how your call went.

When you're connected to your senator's office, tell the staff member who answers the city and state you're calling from, and that you strongly urge your senator to vote for the Employee Free Choice Act.

We need your help to win. Many of the same lobbyists and front groups who are spending $1.5 million a day to defeat health care reform are also spending millions to defeat the Employee Free Choice Act, engaging in the same kind of smear campaigns that are being used to try to kill health care reform.

We're fighting back by sending people to lobby in DC. We need to back them up by making our voices heard loud and clear on Capitol Hill.

Call 1-866-311-3405 now, and urge your senator to support the Employee Free Choice Act.

Afterward, click here and let us know what happened when you called.

Right now, workers who want a union often face intimidation, delays, stalling tactics, and even are even fired illegally.

Without workers' freedom to bargain, the economy can't be rebuilt in a way that guarantees the middle class will be rebuilt with it. The Employee Free Choice Act would put real money into the hands of working families without costing the government a dime. And we need your help to make it a reality.

Thank you for doing your part to help us pass the Employee Free Choice Act!
