Las Vegas Review-Journal reports on Sen. John Ensign’s efforts to stir up support against EFCA at the grassroots level. Ensign, still worried about EFCA’s possible passage in the future, refuses to become complacent on EFCA.
The article also highlights an interesting grassroots event simulating card check. Particpants were asked to submit cards for a free lunch at a restaurant. The participants were surprised to learn that the “unreadable small print” on the card they filled out had signed them up for a union. As Ensign described it, “That’s a perfectly legal way to get signatures for card check, and that is exactly how a lot of these card checks take place.”
