CDW Lauds House Markup of Workforce Democracy And Fairness Act
Today, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace sent a letter to Members of the House of Representatives, which read in part:
On behalf of millions of job creators concerned with mounting threats to the basic tenets of free enterprise, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace thanks you for holding today’s mark up on H.R. 3094, the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act. We support H.R. 3094 and urge Committee to approve and Congress to immediately pass this much-needed legislation. The bill directly addresses recent and economically crippling actions of the National Labor Relations Board (Board or NLRB). Specifically, the bill would block the Board from moving forward with its ambush election proposal—an effort by the Board to effectively deny employees’ access to critical information about unions and strip employers of free speech and dues process rights. H.R. 3094 also would reverse the Board’s recent decision in Specialty Healthcare, which poses an immediate and direct threat to our economy by opening the door to swarms of micro-unions.
