A case for labor

Posted By on Wed, May 20, 2009 at 7:57 AM

New study: Private workplaces are more hostile than ever to union organizing. "Standard practice" in union election campaigns: "...for workers to be subjected to threats, interrogation, harassment, surveillance and retaliation for union activity."

ALSO: Sen. Tom Harkin, lead sponsor of the Employee Free Choice Act, says he's about to get tough on Democrats backsliding on commitments to labor (anybody we know?) Work on a real compromise or prepare to be forced to vote.
