PA Dems Vote to Strip Workers of Free Choice

The Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee has come out firmly in support of labor unions when they voted to endorse the Employee Free Choice Act. This should not comes as a surprise to anyone following the 2008 election campaign given that every Democrat Presidential Candidate has also issued their blanket support for the EFCA. However, the lack of internal debate over the EFCA is disconcerting.

As this blog has discussed on numerous occasions, the EFCA would dramatically overhaul private sector labor relations in this country on a scale not seen since the passage of the National Labor Relations Act itself. 

The fact that there has been little internal discussion by the Democrats over the EFCA’s potential effects is a prime example of the power of union endorsements for elections overriding the need for serious discussion over the EFCA’s ramifications. Should the EFCA ever be passed into law, it is unlikely that any serious debate will accompany the legislation.
