Exclusive Interview: NLRB General Counsel Has a Plan to Grow Union Membership
In a More Perfect Union Exclusive, NLRB General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo lays out her plan to increase union membership.
National Labor Relations Board General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo wants to give unions a fair shot. As union organizing picks up across the country, companies are intimidating workers with union-busting and mandatory captive audience meetings.
These types of union-busting have taken place at countless workplaces. Including the Buffalo, New York, Starbucks, the Mesa, Arizona, Starbucks, and the Bessemer, Alabama, Amazon Warehouse.
Abruzzo wants to put a stop to workplace intimidation. She is calling on the NLRB to re-consider the Joy Silk Doctrine. This would mean when a majority of workers show support for a union, their employer must recognize it.
This move would significantly broaden unionization and end the coercive tactics corporations use get workers to vote against a union.
