Due to public outrage, congress has elected not to act on the "Card Check" program.

It wasn't due to public outrage. It was due to financial pressure from wealthy corporate management. Why would the public not want it to be easier for them to unionize? That makes no sense.

But it doesn't apply to pilots under the Railway Labor Act anyhow, so who cares.

I'm a union member, and I'm glad it is dead....

The EFCA isn't dead, only the "card check" portion is. The remaining provisions dealing with election timelines, arbitration for first-time contracts, heavy penalties for union-busting, etc... are all still moving forward.

It's unfortunate that "card check" didn't make it, though.

Fortunately your opinion does not much the rest of the US. Secret ballot is the American way.
