How Obama Could Fix Labor Law

From a summary:
The current US system for union recognition on the basis of employee elections has long been fundamentally defective, because of the wide scope for employer obstructionism. The current proposals backed by American unions and the Democratic majority in Congress would replace elections by a ‘card-check’ provision; but this would also be open to abuse. Instead, Gould suggests measures to reform the current system while retaining the election mechanism.
