Push-Button Unionism?

Evans, M. Stanton
March 1978
National Review;3/17/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 11, p348
The article presents information on the labor reform bill under consideration in the U.S. Senate. The critics of the bill have expressed their concern that the bill will result in tilting labor-management relations even more in favor of the unions. This bill is expected to make membership rules easier. The labor unions are finding it difficult to retain their existing members. There is need to pass legislations that would protect the individual rights of the workers. One such legislation is the Employee Bill of Rights Act which aims at protecting the procedural and substantive independence of employees in the bargaining process.
