CDW: NLRB Control-Alt-Deletes Good Policy

Coalition Stunned At One-sided Agency’s Latest Move

WASHINGTON, D.C. // DECEMBER 11, 2014 // Today, the nationwide Coalition for a Democratic Workplace released the following statement of CDW chairman Geoffrey Burr in response to the “Purple Communications” National Labor Relations Board decision that opens up employer email systems to union organizing activity:

“The president’s one-sided NLRB continues to do everything within and beyond its power to hand gifts to union organizers at the expense of employers and employees. Today’s decision is an attack on property rights and injects uncertainty into business communications systems. Ironically, this interference in complex human resources programs will cause confusion in important programs such as harassment prevention.”
