NLRB Decision Strengthens Union Rights, Workers

LIUNA applauds the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB’s) final joint–employer rule announced today. The rule is an important win for working people that will strengthen our union rights, allowing workers to negotiate for fair wages and working conditions, even when a company uses a subcontractor or staffing agency to evade their responsibilities.

Predatory construction staffing agencies and the project owners who hide behind them will no longer be able to avoid their responsibilities. This rule ensures that union members will have the power to bargain with the company who actually makes changes in the workplace.
