Card check compromise

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2009 at 9:37 AM

Says here that unions have agreed to drop the card check provision from the Employee Free Choice Act and settle for a compromise that would speed union elections and perhaps provide a fewother sops to labor, such as access to employees during work hours.

Article says U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor was in the group of senators that have worked out a compromise to bring along more moderate Democrats.

Labor leaders voiced confidence that if Mr. Pryor backed the compromise, [Sen. Blanche] Ms. Lincoln and other moderates would do likewise.

Talking Points Memo notes that unions are not unanimous about removing the majority sign-up provision. The Times notes that many businesses don't like the legislation even without card check.
