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.
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.
