Politico, “Tom Harkin aims for Arlen Specter EFCA compromise“:
Sen. Tom Harkin is wooing Sen. Arlen Specter back to the pro-union side on the stalled Employee Free Choice Act.
Without providing any specifics about a potential compromise on the so-called card check bill, Harkin (D-Iowa), the chief sponsor of the bill, said Specter’s “staff and my staff have been working diligently over the last several days to get everything ready” for a final negotiation.
Harkin said Tuesday he didn’t know where “the compromises are going to come, but we’re trying to find a compromise that will get 60 votes.”
How about a compromise that creates a system that allows labor unions to win more than two out of every three organizing votes.
You know, like the current system?
