The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Senate to block a procedural motion that prevented HR 800/S 1041 or the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) from becoming a law. It adds that Senators voted 50 to 48 to defeat the legislation. EFCA, would undo 70 years of labor law by taking the ability of employees to vote to recognize a union by secret ballot and replacing it with card-check process, making the employees decide in front of union organizers who support the unionization.
