Oh, Yah. Wisconsin Pioneers "Card Check"

Jo found this in the new "budget".

...Provide that bargaining units would be formed if and when a majority of research assistants at each campus affirm the decision to participate in collective bargaining by signing an authorization card stating this intent. Require the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission (WERC) to establish a procedure whereby research assistants may determine whether to form themselves into collective bargaining units by authorization cards in lieu of secret ballot...

This only applies to research assistants. Doyle's proposal (for faculty) requires a secret ballot.
