HARRISBURG - Americans for Prosperity (AFP) will defend workers rights to cast secret ballots in Pennsylvania as part of its nationwide Save My Ballot tour in opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act, also known as card check, which would strip workers of their rights in union organizing elections.
Some lawmakers want to abolish private ballot elections through the misnamed Employee Free Choice Act, and allow unions to organize just by collecting signatures on union cards. This would give them the ability to pressure and intimidate workers in public, said AFP President Tim Phillips. We support the secret ballot so every worker has the right to vote on such an important matter without coercion or retaliation.
AFP will be joined by Joe the Plumber in taking its Save My Ballot Tour across Pennsylvania-- Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia-- to urge U.S. Senator Arlen Specter to vote against card check legislation.

Western PA reminder ping.
He did, but I think they started organizing this tour prior to that.
This could be just as bad as card check.
Actually, Joe The Plumber should be touring all the Teaparties and my brother and I should be working with the save the ballot people. : )
