Washington, D.C., May 7, 2012 - CEI and Workplacechoice.org  have launched a new smartphone application that gives citizen activists real-time information on labor union news and how their lawmakers have voted on labor legislation. The easy-to-use app allows people to quickly look up labor union news, along with congressional votes. News can be broken down by topic, making mobile research on particular unions, states, and issues easy. App users can access Workplacechoice’s much acclaimed Congressional Labor Scorecard and Big Labor vs. Taxpayers Index right from their phone.
“We are very excited about the launch of the new Workplacechoice.org mobile application," said Vincent Vernuccio , CEI Labor Policy Attorney. "The app puts CEI on the cutting edge of mobile news. More importantly, it empowers activists to know exactly how their congressmen voted, busy HR professionals to keep tabs on the latest labor issues, and state legislators to know how to improve their state’s union laws, all from their phone!”
