NLRB and DOJ Form Partnership to Protect Workers

Elections have consequences, and when the right people are elected, good things happen to support America’s workforce.

A great example is this new partnership between the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the Justice Department (DOJ). They are joining together to better protect free and fair labor markets and ensure that workers can freely exercise their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The two groups support fair competition in labor markets, including the protection of American workers from collusive or anticompetitive employer practices and unlawful interference with employees’ right to organize. 

“Under the NLRA, workers have the right to organize to improve their pay and working conditions,” said NLRB General Counsel Abruzzo. “When businesses interfere with worker organizing, either through creating structures designed to evade labor law or through anticompetitive practices, it hinders our economy and our democracy.” 

The partnership will strengthen the federal government’s ability to effectively stop this kind of unlawful activity, and therefore better protect workers’ rights to freely associate with one another to improve their wages and working conditions and to collectively bargain through freely chosen representatives.”
