Card Check: Political Strategies and the Shame of the SEIU

Financial Week reports from the Republican Convention in St. Paul on the politicking involved in the Employee Free Choice Act, the legislation that would deprive employees of a secret ballot in union-organizing elections and impose mandatory contract terms if the union and business do not reach an agreement on a first contract.

If the legislation comes to the House against next year, don’t be so sure it will pass card check a second time, NAM Executive Vice President Jay Timmons says.

UPDATE: But just to be clear, the Senate is the more promising venue for stopping the anti-democratic card legislation.
