Workforce Fairness Institute


Fairness in the workplace requires the equitable treatment of all employees - union and non-union - as well as small business owners. Everyone is entitled to a right to work, the freedom of association and a right to do business.

Unfortunately, Big Labor isn't interested in fairness; they are only interested in expanding their power and collecting more dues. To further these ends, they are promoting a number of controversial policy proposals that have gained traction thanks to their political allies.

If you're concerned about fairness in the workplace, you should know more about the issues below:

  • Joint Employer Rules

    The NLRB and its big labor cronies have taken a new step to hinder job growth and economic activity throughout our business communities with their new Joint Employer rule. They recently radically expanded the standard for determining who is the “employer” under the National Labor Relations Act. The result has created these newly-minted “joint employers,” which will drag millions of small businesses into costly time-consuming labor disputes and negotiations.

    Micro Unions

    In a move that will tie businesses up in red tape, the NLRB is allowing labor bosses to organize "micro-unions" with as few as three or four workers. This unprecedented move will sow division and disharmony in the workplace and destroy small businesses. The only people who benefit from micro-unions are Big Labor bosses.

  • The Employee Rights Act

    Workers should expect protections and fairness in the workplace at all times. The rule of law shouldn't favor Big Labor bosses only. The legislation will give workers things like secret ballots, resolving the "ambush" election rule, and more.

    The Ambush Election Rule

    The Ambush Election Rule is an unfair overreach for big labor, which only serves to increase their influence and manipulation of workers throughout the United States. Workers deserve to have the time and resources needed to make a thought-out and well informed decision when it comes to voting for unionization. The Ambush Election Rule ensures one thing: an increase in the ability for big labor to circumvent the election process and line their pockets with union dues.

  • The Employee Privacy and Protection Act

    To safeguard the privacy of America’s workers, Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions Subcommittee Chairman Phil Roe (R-TN) introduced the Employee Privacy Protection Act. The legislation will give workers greater control over the disclosure of their personal information and help modernize an outdated union election process.

    The Truth About “Worker Centers”

    What do you do when you’re a labor boss at a time when union membership is at its lowest point in over 50 years? Anything you can to save a sinking ship, apparently. That includes forming new union front groups called “worker centers” to pull in additional funding for unionization efforts. By forming under the guise of charitable organizations, worker centers are able to seek funding from a wider array of sources than traditional unions.
