Winning Issue » NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD


The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is an independent government agency that is charged with enforcing our labor laws. It guarantees the right of employees to organize and collectively bargain with employers. The NLRB conducts elections for union representation and investigates charges of unfair employer labor practices. Unfair labor practices include interference with the formation of labor unions, encouraging or discouraging membership in a union, and refusal to bargain collectively with an employee representative. In 2011, the NLRB ruled that unions should be allowed to organize sub-units of an organization as opposed to an entire company. Opponents claim this decision creates a hardship on businesses because employers now face the possibility of negotiating and dealing with the demands of multiple so-called “micro-unions” who have different wages, hours and working conditions. Union supporters claim here are thousands of workplaces across the country where small union bargaining units already exist. They say there is nothing inappropriate, unusual or illegal about these small unions and claim efforts to overturn this NLRB rule are merely an attempt to make labor organizing more difficult.


Pending Resolution:
S.801 - Representation Fairness Restoration Act



Options


  • I oppose reforming current National Labor Relations Board policy and wish to defeat S.801 - Representation Fairness Restoration Act, and also wish to donate resources to the campaign committee of either Rep. Paul Ryan or Sen. Mitch McConnell
  • I support reversing the 2011 National Labor Relation Board’s collective bargaining decision by replacing the current restriction in the meaning of collective bargaining unit to employer unit, craft unit, plant unit, or subdivision; requires the NLRB, instead, to determine a unit as appropriate for collective bargaining if it consists of employees that share a sufficient community of interest; prohibiting the exclusion of employees from the unit unless the interests of the group seeking a separate unit are sufficiently distinct from those of other employees to warrant the establishment of a separate unit, and wish to pass S.801 - Representation Fairness Restoration Act, and also wish to donate resources to either the campaign committees of Sen. Lamar Alexander (TN) and/or Sen. Johnny Isakson (GA), or to an advocate group currently working with this issue
