Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

More California Dreamin: A Card Check Win!

Congratulations are due California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as all farm workers, after the Termination of SB 180, which would have ended secret ballot elections for the state’s farm workers. It’s the first step in the national fight over securing workplace democracy and defeating the Orwellian named “Employee Free Choice Act.”

UPDATE: From NAM’s blog:

Congratulations to the Governor for vetoing that last bill, which would have deprived farmworkers of their right to determine their association via secret ballot. Cesar Chavez fought long and hard for the secret ballot, but organized labor now finds it inconvenient.
