Owner of Haven's Candies Opposes Employee Free Choice Act

"It's not good for business, it's not good for the
state," says Andy Charles, owner of the Westbrook-based Haven's Candies.
Charles was at an event organized by the Maine Merchants Association.
Under current law, if Charles' 25 workers wanted to form a union, he could
demand that they vote by secret-ballot. But, under the Employee Free
Choice Act, workers could unionize as long as a majority of them filled out
cards in favor of the move--hence the use of the phrase "card check" by the
bill's critics.
