EFCA : new footwork needed

Jennifer Rubin at Commentary wonders whether opponents of the now-stymied Employee Free Choice Act are prepared for a second battle of "EFCA-lite" proposals that would aim at strengthening union organization without either card check or compulsorily imposed federal contracts. Such preparation, she argues, might call for one of two strategies: a "bipartisan/balanced" approach that would grant some of the requested new powers to unions in exchange for greater transparency and accountability on unions' part; and a more fundamental challenge which would involve trying to show that EFCA is unneeded in the first place and that there is neither crisis nor unfairness in the current set of rules unions must follow in their efforts to organize.
