Today Senator Harkin talked to a gathering of union activists about labor’s No. 1 priority, the Employee Free Choice Act:
As of July, I can tell you this openly and I know the press is all here but we had worked out a pretty good agreement. Labor was at the table.
However on July 29th the Senator claimed:
I think we’re 80 [percent] to 90 percent there,” Harkin said, without detailing what is keeping the sides from agreement.
Harkin has set several moving targets for action on the EFCA, as we’ve noted here previously.
