Waynesboro Dems to meet, discuss EFCA
The Waynesboro Democratic Committee meeting set for Wednesday night will feature a forum on the Employee Free Choice Act led by a local labor organizer.
Jody Grogan, a retired local schoolteacher who is helping the Service Employees International Union with its Virginia Change That Works labor advocacy program, is the special guest at this month’s committee meeting, which will take place Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Meeting Room A at the Waynesboro Public Libary.
The public is invited to take part in the committee meeting and in the forum on EFCA, legislation currently making its way through Congress that would level the playing field between workers and management by giving workers the ability to form a union by voting with their signatures on cards, then giving them a shot at binding arbitration that would without doubt put an end to protracted negotiations that can go on for years unabated right now.
