The “Cardcheck Congress?”
Two months into the new Congress, and unions are about to begin the big push for legislation to destroy the secret ballot in union organizing campaigns.
Though numerous e-mail skirmishes show up in my inbox, none of the groups, pro- or con-, have yet appealed for air time to argue the importance of the issue, which is strange given that this is one of the few debates of 2009 wherein the response from listeners directed towards the key swing senators such as Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu might actually matter. Perhaps Rick Berman will want to appear to state the case against card check. Union spokespeople are of course welcome as well. Hugh@hughhewitt.com.
