Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Card check two-step


You put your support for card check in, you pull your support of card check out, you put your support for card check in and you get the union endorsement.

From the AP:

Cal Cunningham said in an interview with The Associated Press that he supports elections as the sole way for there to be unions created, but opposed so-called “card check” organizing. He clarified in a later interview that he would be open to hearing arguments about “card check” but felt it could not pass. The labor-backed idea would allow workers to form a union by signing cards instead of by secret ballot.

The Teamsters recently endorsed Cunningham.
