RILA Statement on Senate Appropriations Vote on Micro-Unions

06/14/2012

“While the outcome of today’s vote is disappointing, we will continue to pursue all avenues to block the NLRB’s job-killing micro-union decision. Micro-unions will cause division within the retail workforce leading to conflicts and complexities that will undermine retailers’ ability to grow and create jobs,” said Katherine Lugar, executive vice president for public affairs. “The NLRB’s micro-union decision benefits big labor at the expense of individual employees and employers. Micro-unions undermine the flexibility and the cross-training that retail employees seek and the agility that retailers rely upon to meet the expectations of customers.”
