Republican attack on fair union election rule fails in Senate — Congressional Republicans on Tuesday failed in their latest attempt to roll back workers' rights. The U.S. Senate defeated (45-54) a measure (S.J. Res. 36) to kill a new National Labor Relations Board rule that makes modest changes in the procedures for workers who want to vote on whether to form a union. It also would have banned the NLRB from ever issuing any similar fair election rule.
