Workforce Fairness Institute Applauds Approval Of Pro-Worker Legislation In U.S. House Committee
Bills Now Merit Expeditious Support In Full House Chamber
Washington, D.C. – Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce voting to approve several significant pieces of legislation, particularly the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act (H.R. 2776) and Employee Privacy Protection Act (H.R. 2775):
“The U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce deserves immense credit for standing up for workers and job creators in approving legislation that rolls back the National Labor Relations Board’s ambush election rule, as well as enacting safeguards for the personal information of employees. The Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act ensures workers will have sufficient time to receive and review information during labor organizing elections. And the Employer Privacy Protection Act protects worker privacy by limiting information accessed by union organizers, while allowing employees to determine their preferred method of communication. These important pieces of legislation benefit American employees and employers, and merit expeditious consideration by the full U.S. House.”
