Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Supreme Court might be last line of defense against EFCA

A recent article posted on argues that the U.S. Supreme Court might be the last line of defense against labor unions’ Employee Free Choice Act powerplay:

Even if Democrats sweep Congress and the White House in November, the chamber and other business groups appear to have an ally in the Supreme Court.  In several cases last year, the court ruled in favor of business interests, including several decision that limit frivolous lawsuits against employers.

As early as next week, the court could rule whether a federal labor law pre-empts California’s prohibition against employers using state money to deter union organizing campaigns. With many winds in Washington blowing in Big Labor’s favor, business groups are hoping the justices come out on their side once again.
