Unions Get Dues from Labor Leaders

Bill sets firm timetable for employer to negotiate terms

Illinois labor leaders today renewed their push for passage of the Employee Free Choice Act, a federal bill that would make it easier for workers to unionize

During a press conference Tuesday at the headquarters of the Chicago Federation of Labor, U.S. Rep. Danny Davis (D-7), who supports H.R. 800, said he did not anticipate any holdup in the House, where it has already been approved and hoped that the Senate would move quickly to send the bill to the president’s desk.

The bill has languished since it was introduced in 2007.
