At the beginning of 2010, conventional wisdom held that the labor movement had taken the offensive and was on the brink of pushing through the Congress wholesale changes that would give unions unprecedented leverage in organizing and in collective bargaining. The election results of last year, however, beginning with the election of Republican Senator Scott Brown in Massachusetts, denied supporters of the Employee Free Choice Act the 60 Senate votes effectively necessary for passage. This not only halted the pro-labor agenda, but actually reversed the dynamic, putting the labor movement on the defensive regarding its legislative efforts. Indeed, just over the past few weeks, several new legislative labor initiatives have been introduced in Congress and in the states which would significantly restrain union growth and power.
