They Voted For You: Unions

West Virginia's Democratic U.S. Senators, Robert C. Byrd and Jay Rockefeller, voted for the motion to advance the Employee Free Choice Act of 2007 toward a Senate vote on passage.

The 51-48 vote fell short of the 60-vote margin needed for the cloture motion to prevail.

The Associated Press has a story on the vote, and also offers this sidebar that looks at at how unions have fared in recent organizing elections.
