Look for the union marchers

Posted By on Sat, Jul 11, 2009 at 6:02 AM

Three national labor union leaders are in town today for a march from Central High, a historic symbol of civil rights, to the state Capitol for a rally in support of legislation to restore some balance to working men and women in the union negotiating process.

Brummett explains that the show is aimed at U.S. Sens. Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln. Pryor has been engaged in recent talks aimed at crafting a compromise to card check legislation. Knock me over with a feather if the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its congressional minions signs off on anything that improves the lot of the worker. But I'd be happy to be surprised.
