Poll shows support weak for ‘card check’ legislation

Sen. Harry Reid take note — new polling out today shows little support in Nevada for key provisions of the so-called Employee Free Choice Act, the labor-led legislation that would make it easier for union organizers to corral workers into unions — an issue that Senator Reid may try to ram through the senate when congress returns in the new year.

The poll showed 57 percent of respondents oppose changing the way unions are organized and 64 percent oppose allowing mandatory arbitration to settle organizational disputes between workers and managers, as is proposed under the bill.

The poll also showed more voters would be less likely to support political candidates who would vote for these Big Labor privileges.
