MBJ Partner Testifies Before Vermont Legislature About Maintaining Secret Ballot Elections for Union Certification Instead of Card Check Approach

On March 14, 2007, Nick DiGiovanni testified before a Vermont legislative committee about employers’ need to preserve the secret ballot election method as the sole means of union certification.  Mr. DiGiovanni, testifying against passage of a pending bill that would allow unions to be certified through a simple card check majority rather than an election, explained that the right of employees to vote by secret ballot as to whether or not they want to be represented by a labor organization has been a sacred right in this country and in Vermont for decades.

A copy of Mr. DiGiovanni’s remarks are available on MBJ’s website here.
