No Pryor or Future Deals

Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) is seeking a backroom deal to revitalize the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill. The Hill reports:

. . . Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) said he intends to approach Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) on the Senate floor this week to see if there’s another way to come at the labor issue . . . .

Pryor said that he had been talking with Specter and other Democrats about finding another direction prior to Specter’s announcement, and that he intends to seek him out during the budget votes and see if there’s an opportunity to try again.

“I see this time now as really an opportunity for compromise or for a new approach on addressing some of the issues that revolve around that issue,” Pryor said. “I’m not sure it is over yet. It may be. I’m going to talk to Sen. Specter this week and see where he wants to go.”

Of course, any “Pryor deal” or future deal is a raw deal for workers.
