A new coalition, Agriculture for a Democratic Workplace, has announced its opposition to the proposed card check legislation, “Employee Free Choice Act” (EFCA). EFCA would eliminate secret-ballot elections in favor of card check. If a majority of the employees sign a petition or card, then the facility would be organized.

Members of the new coalition are: American Farm Bureau Federation, American Nursery and Landscape Association, National Cattlemen's Beef Association, National Chicken Council, National Milk Producers Federation, National Potato Council, National Turkey Federation, United Fresh Produce Association, U.S. Apple Association and the Wine Institute.
