Washington, D.C. (October 5, 2011) – The Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) today released the following statement in response to theintroduction of the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act (H.R. 3094):
“We applaud the continued efforts of representatives in the U.S. House as they work to defend employee and employer rights by preventing unelected bureaucrats in the National Labor Relations Board from making radical changes to workplace rules,” said Fred Wszolek, spokesperson for the Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI). “The Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act codifies critical freedoms workers and small business owners have earned including both free speech and choice when deciding whether to form a collective bargaining unit. President Obama’s labor boards have demonstrated an unyielding commitment to paying back Big Labor bosses at the expense of jobs and our economy. As a result, the actions of Congress to ensure the scales are balanced are necessary and justified, and merit the support of Democrats and Republicans alike.”
The Workforce Fairness Institute is an organization committed to educating voters, employers, employees and citizens about issues affecting the workplace. To learn more, please visit: http://www.workforcefairness.com.
