Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

No Quit In Card Check Fight

Roll Call reports that “pro-EFCA groups showed no mercy on Capitol Hill this week” as labor continues to aggressively push for card check. Labor officials downplayed the talk of compromise on EFCA. AFL-CIO’s Bill Samuel said, “I don’t think the question is ‘Are we open to compromise?’ The way Congress works, a bill is marked up, amendments are offered, it’s either improved or weakened, and you make a judgment at the time.”

The article makes clear that labor does not plan to let EFCA go down without a fight.
