Specter to Labor: You’ll Like How I Vote On EFCA–Labor Skeptical

On Saturday, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) addressed a crowd of union activists in Pittsburgh and answered for his wavering on EFCA.

“You want my vote, I want yours,” heckled one of the activists.

“I believe you’ll be satisfied with my vote on this issue,” Specter said in response. You can watch the video here.

“I understand your job’s on the line,” Specter told the crowd, which shouted back, “your job’s on the line!”

“I think you’ll be satisfied with my vote on this issue on union organizing and on first contract just like you’ve been satisfied with the 22 times I voted for Davis Bacon.”
