We don’t know their take on the SEPTA strike, but Jimmy Rollins and outfielder Shane Victorino have made their position clear when it comes to the Employee Free Choice Act.

The Phillies teammates appear in a new AFL-CIO ad supporting the congressional bill that would make it easier for workers to join labor unions. The Major League Baseball Players Association asked the pair, who support the initiative, to pose for the ad, that recently ran in the Politico newspaper.

Rollins and Victorino appear alongside Yankees infielder Mark Teixeira (Booooooo) and nine other MLB players “who were gracious enough to lend their names to the ad to support workers all across the country,” says AFL-CIO media specialist Eddie Vale. Vale is a Mets fan but said he was rooting for the Phillies Wednesday, as “I hate the Yankees even more.

P.S. Congratulations to the 2009 Phillies on a terrific season.
