Abstract

[Excerpt] On behalf of the AFL-CIO, I urge you to vote against H.R. 3094, the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, when it is considered by the House of Representatives. Masquerading as a bill to protect the status quo with respect to elections supervised by the National Labor Relations Board, H.R. 3094 would actually mandate delays, giving companies more power to wear down support for the union and creating new opportunities for stalling elections. The result of this bill will be to make workers wait months, perhaps years before they are allowed to vote on whether to form a union. The bill would also destroy 75 years of NLRB case law that has governed the appropriateness of bargaining units, giving companies more power to gerrymander the eligibility of voters in a union representation election in order to unfairly skew the results.
