Last week Andy Stern challenged the Chamber of Commerce to debate him on the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), saying:
“Why don’t we just have a public debate about the Employee Free Choice Act? If he [the Chamber] feels as strongly as he does, he should be willing to have a public discussion so we can do this in the sunshine.“
We couldn’t agree more. After all, we challenged the unions to debate EFCA months ago.
So is Stern really ready to put his money where his mouth is? (Heck, we’ll even foot the bill for the room. I heard the SEIU was a little strapped for cash.)
We sent him a formal invitation to debate earlier this week. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if he’s really ready to have a “public discussion.”
