I know they are just trying to court the union vote, but I don't know why they want to deny employees access to the less-abusive secret-ballot election process when choosing whether to unionize. A lot of people who usually side with unions say that the "card check" method is better because of how long the secret ballot method takes and how management sometimes to intimidate people into not voting to unionize. However, unions can also try to intimidate people (and often do) , and the article also points out that the secret ballot process is "favored by federal labor policy and the courts"). If it's favored by the courts, shouldn't the pro-union people agree with the secret ballot process? They seem to agree with other stuff "because the court says so".
