The Threat to Card Check Organizing

A good article on the legal threat to use of card checks for union organizing and media coverage of the issue.

The most sardonic comment from the article is the observation that this issue, a critical one setting off alarms throughout the labor movement, doesn't warrant any serious coverage by major newspapers:

While a Nexis search for "Catherine Zeta-Jones" turns up 957 articles during the past 30 days, a search for NLRB and "card check" turns up 55 articles during the past 60 days. Of these, many address particular union organizing drives rather than the NLRB's general review of card check, several are letters to editors, and several more are repeats of the same articles.
