Employee Free Choice Act rally Friday in Bloomington

As reported in The Herald-Times today, supporters of the Employee Free Choice Act will gather at 2 p.m. Friday, June 19 in front of the Bloomington Chamber of Commerce office at 400 W. Seventh Street.

The demonstration, according to the story, is being organized by South Central Indiana Jobs with Justice in response to the Chamber of Commerce’s lobbying efforts against passage of the federal bill.

According to a Web site for the bill, the Employee Free Choice Act is intended to:

  • Help America’s working families improve their standard of living.
  • Fix a broken system that gives corporations too much power.
  • Restore fairness and the promise of the American Dream with a robust middle class, economic growth and shared prosperity.

Speakers at the rally in Bloomington, the H-T said, will include City Council Member Isabel Piedmont and President of the White River Central Labor Council Jackie Yenna. It will be facilitated by IU Professor Emeritus Milton Fisk.
