There’s so much news (finally) about the issue of card check union organizing, and its legislative manifestation, the laughably named Employee Free Choice Act, that it can be hard to keep up. Here’s a brief round-up of recent articles worthy of attention.
- Carter Wood at NAM’s blog isn’t neutral on “neutrality” agreements union bosses use to silence employers. Wood references a must-read in today’s New York Sun, titled “Losing Paychecks to Union Officials.”
- Rep. Heath Shuler is taken to task for supporting card check for employees joining a union, but not for leaving a union (see the principle at work in our ad).
- In the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Mike Masterson argued yesterday: “this law would be more aptly named the We Are Watching You Employee Coercion Act.”
- The Lehigh County (PA) Executive says that, the last time it was conducted, “the card check created a lot of dissension and consternation over people not getting a chance to vote.”
