Workforce Fairness Institute Announces Support For Accountability For Represented Workers Act
Vote On Legislation Classifying Worker Centers Participating In Organizing Elections As Labor Unions To Be Scored
Washington, D.C. – The Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) – an organization devoted to educating workers, their employers and citizens about issues affecting the workplace – today issued the following statement from its spokesperson Heather Greenaway regarding the Accountability for Represented Workers Act (H.R. 5665):
“The Accountability for Represented Workers Act is common-sense legislation, which ensures if worker centers want to act like labor unions by participating in organizing campaigns and elections that they are treated like labor unions, plain and simple. We believe Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle should co-sponsor Representative Francis Rooney’s bill as it amends the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act reining in worker centers currently operating without restraint. To demonstrate the Workforce Fairness Institute’s commitment to this legislation, we will be adding it to our congressional scorecard in order to demonstrate to workers and employers alike whether their elected representatives in Washington stand with them on this most important issue.”
