Card Check Compromise?

ACCE Webmaster on Monday, May 11, 2009 at 10:15:00 pm

Is a compromise in the works for the controversial Card Check bill?  This quote from Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA), EFCA's chief proponent in the Senate, suggests so...

"Compromises are going to be made. ... It probably won't be card-check because too many people are opposed to it now."

A editorial in today's Washington Post - The Imperfect Union Bill - acknowledges EFCA's inherent flaws but suggests that there are currently unfair barriers to union organization.  The editorial chastises the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace saying, "Instead of engaging in a good-faith effort to fix the problem, the group, the Coalition for a Democratic Workforce, chooses to deny that there is a problem."  

The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, last week, released a letter urging the Senate to oppose "union efforts to trump up a so-called "compromise" on the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) will further violate worker rights and place an undue burden on small businesses." 

Here are some other articles that suggest a Card Check compromise:
