The BlueGreen Alliance opposed H.R. 3094, “Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act,” which would eliminate¬† 75 years of case law and apply a one-size-fits-all test to union representation elections, instead of current standards drafted to fit the particular needs of specific industries and circumstances.

Specifically, this bill would mandate delays in the union election process and not place a imit on how long an election can be delayed. It would force workers into the largest possible units without democratically letting workers choose the appropriate community of interest in bargaining. And it would also allow companies to bombard workers with anti-union materials while limiting access for union communication.
