Workforce Fairness Institute Applauds Representation Fairness Restoration Act Introduction
Washington, D.C. – Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson’s introduction of the Representation Fairness Restoration Act (S.1217), as well as companion legislation in the U.S. House (H.R. 2629):
“We applaud this important effort to reverse the flawed decision by the National Labor Relations Board to allow micro-unions. The decision in Specialty Healthcare was a huge win for labor bosses and fundamentally changed the traditional bargaining unit standard that union elections have operated under for decades. Micro-unions disrupt the workplace and harm workers – serving no other benefit than to increase Big Labor’s rolls. This crucial legislation in both the U.S. House and Senate restores fairness to the system, ensuring that all workers have a voice in their own representation.”
