Card Check this Year?

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) says senators are “still negotiating.”

From The Hill:  

McCaskill said that while senators were still negotiating the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), a controversial bill to reform union organizing rules, it was unlikely to even include the actual “card check” provision itself, which has been the subject of malign by conservatives and business groups.

EFCA was a top priority of the labor community heading into last year’s Congress, but the emergence of a series of Democrats to have questioned some of its provisions, along with timing issues on jobs and healthcare legislation, had left the bill on the backburner. 

“I think there’s a lot of negotiation that’s going on about card check,” McCaskill said.
