US Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT) seized upon the aforementioned California court decision in Dynamex (above) and filed legislation this week in Congress that would adopt the three-factor “ABC” classification on the national level. Perhaps more importantly however, the bill the Senator is calling the Workplace Democracy Act would nullify state right-to-work laws and allow workers to vote for union representation through an informal method of “card check”. “Card check”, which was outlawed by passage of the Taft-Hartley Act in 1947, and establishes the signing of union cards as votes in favor of establishing a union – replacing the current NLRB sanctioned secret ballot union elections. Sanders’ bill is largely thought to be an effort to rally the progressive base to be active in the 2018 midterm elections.
