Kansas City: INFO & COMMENT Workplace legislation coming to a head in Congress

The U.S. House is expected to vote on, and probably pass, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act — two bills that would make it easier for workers to fight pay discrimination.

[ A third bill coming up: ]

•The Employee Free Choice Act, which would alter the way workers could vote to be represented by a union in their workplaces.

The free choice legislation would create collective bargaining rights in a workplace if a majority of workers sign up for the union. The so-called "card check" process would be much quicker than the current election process, which can take six weeks or longer. The bill would maintain the existing right to a union vote overseen by the National Labor Relations Board if one-third of the workers ask for a federally sponsored election.
