Protect Unions: Preserve Collective Bargaining Rights 

Minimal Script: I am calling Rep. [Brownley/Carbajal] to vote NO on H.R. 2723 and H.R. 2776.

More script if you want it: These deceptively named anti-union measures threaten collective bargaining rights. The “Employee Rights Act” (H.R. 2723) permits employers to count non-voters as “NO” votes in elections on union formation. The Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act (H.R. 2776) permits delays to elections that allow employers time to fill the voter rolls with anti-unionists.

Call Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

OR Rep. Salud Carbajal: (CA-24): DC (202) 225-3601, SB (805) 730-1710 SLO (805) 546-8348
