Busting Unions in the US Capitol
Following a one day strike in April, low wage workers at the US Capitol faced retaliation and coercive statements from their bosses. These actions started an investigated by the National Labor Relations Board, which found 4 violations of labor law. These violations included a supervisor who questioned an employee about organizing and then wondered what it would mean for the workers family if they lost their job. Now, the Restaurant Association, the primary contractor at the Captiol, is agreeing to a settlement instead of contesting the case, which means that the Association agrees to stop trying to prevent organizing and to post in public areas stating workers’ rights in organizing.
