Republican senators introduce bill to undo 'quickie' union election rules

A group of top Senate Republicans on Thursday introduced a bill that would roll back controversial National Labor Relations Board rules designed to speed up the union election process.

The proposal, dubbed the Employee Rights Act, also would require that all union elections be held via secret ballot and that union members opt into paying dues, instead of having the choice to opt out.
