Specter Stumps for Retooled Card Check

Ian Scott on Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 12:47:09 am

At a speech during the AFL-CIO Convention this week in Pittsburgh, Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) unveiled a retooled version of the Employee Free Choice Act that he said, "will be totally satisfactory to labor."

The reworked version of EFCA does not include the card check provision that would abandon secret ballot elections.  But it keeps binding arbitration, stiffens penalties on businesses, and would cut the length of time between the call for a union election and the election date.
