WASHINGTON — Thousands of workers plan to march to Capitol Hill today to deliver 1.5 million signatures in support of a controversial bill, the Employee Free Choice Act, that would make it easier for workers to form a union.
The bill pits organized labor against the business community and is shaping up to become one of the most defining battles in the early days of President Obama’s administration. Workers plan to tell their personal stories about the difficulties associated with organizing drives under the current law, and make the pitch for the legislation at a news conference, followed by the delivery of the signatures.
