At a Labor Day labor rally with Sen. Specter in Pittsburgh, PA, Vice President Biden chose to highlight Card Check.  Here is a quote from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

"If you wanted to join a union, you could join a union and not be stopped by employers," Biden said, referring to the Employee Free Choice Act, now under consideration by Congress. "We're going to get that done with the help of Arlen Specter."

Treat this as a reminder that Card Check is still on the administration's ever growing priority list.
