I haven’t really been following the development of the Employee Free Choice Act. The bill, which would change the rules how unions are formed, has reached the House and Senate today. I do know that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce strenuously opposes the act, since it would likely make unionization easier.
Slate’s Christopher Beam puts together a brilliant piece of explanatory journalism on the EFCA and what exactly is at stake. This is a must read for anyone interested in learning more about this process, and especially important for anyone who watched the tedious and tenuous UAW-Foxwoods fight here in Souteastern Connecticut.
