Congress will be taking a fresh look at the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) this fall, now that a Capitol Hill compromise has stripped out the bill’s controversial “card check” provision, which would have required union certification with a majority of employee signatures.
Still remaining in the legislation, however, are provisions requiring mandatory arbitration of many contracts, quick union elections and strict restrictions on what employers can do to convince workers not to vote for union representation.
Consensus: With health care reform and appropriations bills eating up much of the fall congressional calendar, the EFCA could fall victim to time. But Democrats want to show a victory this year, and the EFCA could be the ticket.
