The Workforce Fairness Institute wants to hear from you because, above all, labor issues affect workers, business owners and taxpayers.



Thank Senators Blunt, Shelby and Graham today!

The U.S. House of Representatives and Senate have taken steps to defund the Ambush Rule through the appropriations process. The ambush election rule unfairly penalizes employers and employees and would have widespread implications for small and large businesses alike.  Employers would be blindsided by these quick elections and employees would have no time to understand the unintended consequences of joining a union.

Many of you played a major part in helping to get Senator Blunt and his Senate colleagues to include the provision in the Senate budget! Now it’s time to thank Senators Blunt, Shelby and Graham for standing up for workers and to ensure the Ambush provision continues to be a part of the overall appropriations bill. Submit your letter thanking them today!

Tell the NLRB to overturn ambush election rules!

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is ambushing your workplace with new election rules that favor union bosses and hurt workers.

Employees would be forced to vote on whether or not to join organized labor in as few as 11 days and would have no time to weigh the ramifications of unionization.

Due to the shortened time frame, these new rules will cripple small business owners by virtually preventing them from seeking legal counsel which could help them understand these new complex laws. In addition, employers will now have to turn over personal employee information such as email addresses and cell phones, in addition to employee home addresses and shift times. Unions organizers will now have unprecedented access to worker information, making you and your neighbors vulnerable to pressure and harassment by Big Labor bosses and organizers.

We need your help today. Tell the NLRB that you stand with workers and businesses in your community, and to overturn the “ambush” election rules. Help yourself and your neighbors restore your rights and privileges.

Support the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act

Big labor and the NLRB’s new ambush election rules are crushing the institutional policies that have previously governed union elections. These new rules force employees to vote on whether or not to join organized labor in as few as 11 days, and they would have no time to weigh the ramifications of unionization. The shortened election timeframe prevents employer free speech and employee free choice.

The Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act will help preserve fairer and long standing rules that have governed union elections, AND prevent an activist board from implementing sweeping changes at your workplace.

Submit your letter today and ask your member of Congress to stand up for workers and workers’ free choice by support the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act.

Support the Employee Privacy Protection Act

The NLRB’s new ambush election rules are wreaking havoc on employees. Not only do these ambush rules stifle an employee’s ability to take the appropriate time to consider unionizing, but it forces them to turn over private and personal information; an abrupt intrusion into our personal lives.

The Employee Privacy Protection Act will give workers greater control over the disclosure of their personal information and help modernize an outdated union election process.

Submit your letter today and ask your member of Congress to stand up for American workers by supporting the Employee Privacy Protection Act.
