Republicans Introduce NLRA Reforms to Protect Secret Ballot

Republicans Introduce NLRA Reforms to Protect Secret Ballot 
and Roll Back Micro-Union Scheme

Republicans yesterday introduced two legislative proposals that would protect workers’ right to secret ballot union elections and roll back the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) micro-union 

Secret Ballot Protection Act (H.R. 2346) Introduced by Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions Subcommittee Chairman Phil Roe (R-TN)

“As members of Congress, it is our job to prevent any assault on workers’ rights,” said Rep. Roe. "I believe it’s time we permanently strengthen workers’ freedoms, and that is why I introduced the Secret Ballot Protection Act. This legislation sides with every American worker because it protects his or her right to a secret ballot during union elections. This has nothing to do with whether you are pro- or anti-union; this is simply about giving workers the protection and freedom they deserve to make the best decision for themselves and their families without fear of retribution.”

Representation Fairness Restoration Act (H.R. 2347) Introduced by Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)

“In efforts to placate the Obama administration’s allies in organized labor, the NLRB has forfeited economic growth and forsaken the American worker,” said Rep. Price. “The Representation Fairness Restoration Act would reverse this harmful practice and restore the rights of America’s job creators and their employees. This sweeping federal regulation seeks only to satiate the interests of organized labor without regard for the welfare of the worker or the rights of the business owner.”

“The last thing workers need is special interests and government bureaucrats advancing policies that create division in workplaces and undermine their fundamental freedoms,” said Chairman John Kline (R-MN). “The legislation will protect workers’ right to a secret ballot election and end job-destroying micro-unions. Republicans will continue to advance solutions that promote the best interests of America’s workers and job creators.” Read More.
