Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

EFCA: Fails Cloture Vote, 51-48

Today, the Senate failed to pass a procedural vote on EFCA, but the final count was a disturbing 51-48 — enough to pass if the Senate can’t hold a filibuster in the future. Union bosses have already announced that this is their top priority, and they are openly admitting this vote was preparation for a major showdown in 2009.

As the Senate considered the grossly misnamed “Employee Free Choice Act” the Center for Union Facts pulled out all the stops to expose Big Labor’s scheme to end workplace democracy. In a one-week period, we launched $750,000 in national print and TV advertisements, we published new research to clear up union bosses’ misleading rhetoric, and we drove media stories across the country.
