About Us

The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace is composed of hundreds of organizations representing millions of businesses that employ tens of millions of workers nationwide in nearly every industry. CDW members are joined by their mutual concern over actions of the Obama-era National Labor Relations Board, which threatened entrepreneurs, other employers, employees and economic growth.

CDW was originally formed in 2005 in opposition to the so-called Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), which would have replaced secret ballots in unionization elections with “card check,” a process that would have forced employees to choose whether or not to sign union authorization cards in front of coworkers and union organizers, exposing employees to potential intimidation and harassment by those in favor of unionization.

When EFCA was defeated, CDW turned its focus to regulatory overreach by the NLRB, which tried to enact the goals of EFCA through its decisions and regulations. The Board repeatedly tried to upend labor relations to increase the number of dues-paying union members without regard to the negative consequences of doing so for employees, employers and the economy. CDW is now fighting to undo these actions and the expansive overreach of the Obama-era NLRB.
