A reader recently asked me for an update on this issue and, I am always willing to accommodate a reader’s request. First, for further information on the Employee Free Choice Act, I suggest that you go “Employer Links” on my website, and then click “Employee Free Choice Act” on the dropdown menu.
As for new developments on this issue, Congress has been rather silent. There has been such a pushback from the business community on the issue of card-check recognition, that the measure has been losing key senate votes that it would need to pass, such as Sens. Feinstein and Specter. An alternative for a shortened election cycle, in place of card check recognition, is being floated to resurrect and achieve ultimate passage of legislation. Stay tuned.
