'Card Check,' major labor legislation, introduced in Congress

November 15, 2010

Federal legislation that would radically change the way unions organize was introduced March 10 in both houses of Congress.

The Employee Free Choice Act, or "card check," would allow a union to organize if a majority of workers simply sign a card. Critics of the legislation decry it as an end to secret balloting.
