Anti-EFCA group launches post-recess blitz

The Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI), a key opponent of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), sought to build momentum by asking hundreds of supporters thousands to call their lawmakers.

After EFCA supporters lost two key votes in Sens. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) in the past month, WFI is hoping to slam the door on the prized piece of union legislation with a post-recess campaign.

"You can make sure our elected representatives don't lose sight of the fact that there is no compromise on eliminating worker rights by calling their offices and telling them your opinion on Card Check," WFI Deputy Director Jason McBride wrote in an email. "This quick phone call can make a big difference by ensuring Senators continue to hear your voice."

Of course, unions have far from conceded both the recess or the fight for EFCA. Organized labor groups also made hundreds of thousands of calls during the recess, and will continue to do so "with no slow down in sight," according to a spokesperson.

Read the script for WFI callers after the jump.
Hello, my name is [first name, last name] and I'm a constituent from [your state] and I wanted to leave a message for Senator [name]. I am strongly opposed to Card Check, the poorly named "Employee Free Choice Act" or EFCA. The binding arbitration provision within EFCA would result in a government takeover of American business. Senators Lincoln and Specter have come out against EFCA and I believe Senator [name] should do the same. Please tell the Senator to join the growing movement to stop Card Check.
