Kerry Supports NLRB Rule Defending Workers' Rights

Statement

Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) today issued a statement supporting a proposed rule change by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that would discourage frivolous lawsuits and intimidation techniques and protect workers' rights to vote to form a union:

"This rule is about fundamental fairness in the American workplace. It has been well-documented that high-cost litigation and intimidation have been used to stop workers from trying to form a union. That's not right in a country where we pride ourselves on democratic processes. In fact, this rule is fundamentally American because it protects workers' rights to choose to have a union or to choose not to -- and that's a choice we believe in as a matter of principle," said Sen. Kerry. "So I applaud the NLRB for initiating a rulemaking process that will help to give middle-class workers the same rights as their bosses in negotiating the terms of their employment and ensuring that they get a fair shake on the job."
