Employee Free Choice Act: The nursing home industry is a target for labor unions.

September 16, 2008 Advance for Long-Term Care Management

Harold Hoffman and Marvin Weinberg contributed their article, “Employee Free Choice Act: The nursing home industry is a target for labor unions. How would unionization affect your business?” to the September 16, 2008, edition of Advance for Long-Term Care Management.

The article focuses on the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) – which if passed, say the authors, “may bring about the most drastic overhaul of private sector labor relations since the passage of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) in 1935. Ironically, if passed, the EFCA would severely restrict employees’ free choice when it comes to workplace unionization campaigns.”
