Card Check Info Session
The US Chamber has scheduled a conference call for next Thursday (Sept 25) at 2pm to discuss the Employee Free Choice Act, better known as Card Check. The proposed federal legislation -- blocked in 2007 but likely to resurface in 2009 -- would essentially abolish private ballot elections in union organizing drives.
If you are not plugged-in to this issue, try to find time to join this call. Card check is destined to be a major issue next year that will impact many of your members.
The call features two US Chamber speakers, Glenn Spencer, executive director of the Chamber's Workforce Freedom Initiative, and Mike Eastman, executive director of labor policy. It is free for US Chamber members, email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
