Employers Push Back Against Feds’ Anti-Jobs Rule

Coalition for a Democratic Workplace Demands President Rein in NLRB

WASHINGTON, D.C. // AUGUST 22, 2011 // Today, on behalf of more than 275 employers and associations, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace submitted official comments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and reiterated its request that the agency withdraw its anti-employee, job-killing proposed rule.

CDW filed the comments along with 278 local, state, and national employer organizations, which are concerned that the new rule would dramatically shorten the election period for employeesand that:

“shortening of the timetable for holding elections improperly denies employees the time and information necessary to make a fair and informed decision regarding union representation, especially in conjunction with the deferral of important unit determinations until after the election.”

The organization also announced it assisted more than 1,800 job creators, representing all 50 states, to submit regulatory comments and urge their Members of Congress to take action against an out-of-control NLRB.

CDW chairman Geoffrey Burr said, “At a time of considerable economic turmoil and regulatory uncertainty, it’s outrageous that the National Labor Relations Board continues to push Big Labor’s political agenda at the expense of job creation and a much-needed economic recovery.”

Burr added, “If the President is serious about creating the conditions that will stimulate economic growth and create jobs, he must take swift actions to rein in this rogue agency.”

Obama’s Unfair Union-Election Tilt

March 27, 2014

The president is waging a public-relations campaign about income inequality in this country, but rather than focus on growing the economy and encouraging businesses to hire, this administration has fallen back on stale, bankrupt ideas that don’t help workers achieve more.

The latest is a rule proposed by the National Labor Relations Board to speed up union elections, reduce the time workers have to decide whether or not to join a labor union, and force employers to hand over to union organizers their employees’ private information.
