Union Story in North Carolina North Carolina is the least unionized state in America. We'll look at the history of the union movement here and at the latest piece of legislation aimed at making the state more union-friendly. The Employee Free Choice Act has friends and foes. We're joined by people from both sides of the issue as well as a labor historian. GuestsMarybe McMillan - Secretary-Treasurer, North Carolina State AFL/CIO Steve Gennett - Exec.
