There is a concerted effort by the White House to make sure that workers are supported as they try to organize. Over 20 government agencies are working with the White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment to promote the administration’s support for “worker power, worker organizing and collective bargaining.” On Feb. 7, 2020, the Department of Labor issued specific recommendations including: Ensuring workers know their organizing and bargaining rights. Protecting workers who face illegal retaliation when they organize and stand up for workplace rights. Establishing a resource center on unions and collective bargaining. Shedding light on employer’s use of anti-union consultants. Collecting and reporting more information on unions and their role in the U.S. economy. Advancing equity across underserved communities by supporting worker organizing and collective bargaining.
