Today, Senate Republicans Defeated Big Labor's Card Check bill today; the motion failed to proceed 51-48. If the bill had passed it would have stripped workers of their right to a private, federally-supervised election when it came to deciding on union representation. Under the proposed Card Check system, there wouldn't even be an election. A union would have been organized if 50%+1 simply signed a card stating that they wanted a union. Imagine employers, union organizers and/or co-workers surrounding you and saying, "Just sign the card, sign the card."
