The Employee Free Choice Act, a controversial measure that would make it easier for workers to unionize and that has galvanized fervent opposition from business groups, was officially introduced in Congress on Tuesday.

Democrats officially introduced bills in both the House and Senate. The legislation, which opponents like to call the “card check” bill, makes it easier and quicker for workers to unionize. At stake is the very livelihood of the union movement, which has dwindled in recent decades to one-fifth the size it was in the mid-20th century.

Dunkin Brands, IFA, DDIFO, and the CFA, have all come out against Card Check!
