As expected, United States Senators are reportedly discussing compromises to the Employee Free Choice Act (“EFCA”). Newsmax.com reported that Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, who had expressed opposition to EFCA, told union workers that they would “be satisfied” with his support for labor law reform. Newsmax.com also reported that senators were discussing compromises to the proposed legislation. Although Senator Dianne Feinstein of California had been previously reported as opposing EFCA, The People’s Weekly World reported that she denied the reports and also reported that senators are discussing compromises. Reported compromises include shortening the amount of time between the date a union files a petition asking for an election and the date of the election. In addition, other possible compromises include holding elections by mail. Whether these reports are speculative only time will tell.
