Card Check Legislation Introduced In Congress

Mar.11.2009

The Employee Free Choice Act, H.R. 1409 and S. 560, was introduced in both the House of Representatives and Senate yesterday, marking a new beginning of a longstanding effort by the labor movement to change the rules of engagement regarding union organizing and collective bargaining. While the EFCA is assured swift passage in the House of Representatives, it remains unclear whether Democrats will be able to muster the 60 votes required to prevent a Republican filibuster.

Copies of our summary and analysis of the EFCA are available at Crowell.com and at the American Enterprise Institute (aei.org).

If you have any questions about the impact of the Employee Free Choice Act on your organization, or want to know what you can do to be ready, please contact any of the professionals listed or your usual Crowell & Moring contact.
