Candidates Need to Address Our Issues
Jobs and the economy will be hot button issues. Candidates need to address important workforce fairness issues that affect the economy, like:
H.R. 2587, the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act — the Senate needs to support this important piece of legislation, which seeks to ban the unelected and unrepresentative NLRB from designating where a company can do business.
“Quickie” or “ambush” elections – the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has proposed cutting the time of unionization elections in a way that would rig them in favor of union bosses.
Dept. of Labor “Gag Rule” – this proposed regulation would inhibit employers from seeking legal counsel and speaking out during unionization elections.
Micro-Units – the NLRB wants to allow Big Labor to create various bargaining units in one place of work, some as small as two people.
Forced Unionization – the National Mediation Board (NMB) upending nearly a century of precedent and forcing unionization on airline and railroad workers.
This is a great opportunity to find out where those running for President stand on these issues.
