Lincoln and the unions

Posted By on Tue, Nov 18, 2008 at 6:55 AM

Brummett says the union card check legislation presents a problem for U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, though he credits her with looking at broader issues for management and labor. (This issue could do with a little more analysis, by the way. Union leaders have said, for example, that they'd be happy to preserve the secret ballot elections management wants if they could streamline the process by which management now can delay union talks almost forever even when employees do vote in secret for union representation. Management has no interest in the secret ballot. It has every interest in delaying unions by whatever means at hand.)
