Hearing Planned to Address NLRB’s Overreach

Tue, December 12, 2023 3:30 PM | Anonymous

CIRT joined with the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW), composed of a wide cross-sections of organizations, to support the U.S. House Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pension plans to hold a hearing on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board) overreach on critical labor-management issues. The hearing will focus on recent NLRA actions/positions that have radically altered the workplace relationship and balance, including examining the:

(a) Employee Rights Act (ERA) (H.R. 2700), would guarantee workers the right to use secret ballots to choose whether or not to unionize. [For details, See: https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/house-bill/2700];

(b) Modern Worker Empowerment Act (H.R. 5513), seeks to protect “independent contractors” by requiring the use of the longstanding common law test to determine a worker's appropriate classification as either an independent contractor or a traditional employee. [For details, See: https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/house-bill/5513/text?s=4&r=12&q=%7B%22search%22%3A%22stefanik%22%7D]); and

(c) Save Local Business Act (H.R. 2826), will codify into law the traditional “joint employer” standard that requires employers have "actual, direct, and immediate" control over employees to be considered joint employers.  [For details, See: https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/house-bill/2826].

The coalition supports introduction of these bills, which are designed to protect workers, entrepreneurs, businesses, and the economy from controversial steps by the NLRB.13
