Card Check - Did You Know?

ACCE Webmaster on Friday, September 19, 2008 at 11:30:11 pm

By now I hope all business leaders are aware of Card Check and understand that this piece of legislation would be a game-changer for labor relations in this country.  (If you are not, please check out PolicyClearinghouse.org or call me at 703-998-3530.)  But you may have overlooked some of the critical details included in this proposal, for example the binding arbitration clause.

Under Card Check, collective bargaining would have to commence within 10 days of union certification. If the employer and the union fail to reach an agreement after 120 days, negotiations would enter binding arbitration before a federal arbitration panel. Binding arbitration provides no incentive for either side to bargain productively during the initial bargaining phase.  In fact, it gives each side incentive to take the most extreme position possible.

As we approach the next congressional session, make sure you know the facts about Card Check and be ready to your elected representatives what the business community thinks.
