Secret Ballot Protection Act Reintroduced in House

Representative Phil Roe (R-TN) has reintroduced the Secret Ballot Protection Act (SBPA) (H.R. 972) in the House of Representatives. The SBPA would amend the National Labor Relations Act ("NLRA") to guarantee the right to secret ballot union representation elections.
In January, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) introduced a the Senate version.

Both bills are a response to the now-shelved Employee Free Choice Act ("EFCA") would make it an unfair labor practice for an employer to recognize a union that has not been selected via secret ballot and make it unlawful for a union that has not been chosen as the employees’ exclusive representative in a secret ballot election conducted by the NLRB to cause or attempt to cause an employer to recognize or bargain with it.
