Election Day 2010 a Set Back to Card Check Legislation


On November 2nd, 2010, voters in four states – South Carolina, South Dakota, Arizona and Utah – approved initiatives protecting the secret ballot in union elections, measures which will essentially, in the words of the Wall Street Journal editors, “outlaw card check as a means to certify a union.”  And it wasn’t even close:  “In Arizona and Utah the measures passed with 60% of the vote. In South Dakota the margin of victory was 79% and in South Carolina it was 86%.”  Similar measures will come before voters in 2012 in Florida, Mississippi, California and Ohio.
