Labor unions are divided in their opposition to a bill funding the Federal Aviation Administration because of a provision that changes union election rules, according to a report in The Hill.
Opponents fear it endangers their ability to organize.
In a compromise, the Railway Labor Act was changed so that a percentage of a company’s work force needed to vote for holding a union election changes from 35 percent to 50 percent, the report said.
Some unions worry about another FAA shutdown and support the bill. Some remain neutral, while others are campaigning for President Obama to veto it.
Never miss a local story.
Obama has until Friday to sign the bill.
