Labor law is one domain in which there are significant differences between the two ‘major’ candidates for President and their political parties. The Democrats are far more supportive of working Americans than are the Republicans.
The Employee Free Choice Act passed the House last year, but the Republicans were successful in blocking it in the Senate. This bill would make it easier for unions to organize. It would make it more likely that employers would have to face binding arbitration in the event that no collective bargaining agreement was reached in 90 days.
Barak Obama supports the EFCA. John McCain opposes it.
