URGENT: Please make an emergency call to protect workers' rights. - Tuesday, April 17, 2012


URGENT: Please make an emergency call to protect workers' rights.

Tell your senators to VOTE NO on S.J. Res. 36.



The right wing is at it again. And this time, they've got fair elections for workers in the crosshairs.

In December, the federal agency that protects workers' rights issued a rule that cuts back on the delays and red tape that keep employees from having an election on whether to form a union. Now anti-worker politicians in Congress are trying to ram through a resolution to undo this modest step forward for the 99 percent.

The resolution is headed for a vote in the Senate within the week, and we need your voice in this debate. Grab your phone NOW.

The new National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule helps ensure that workers have a fair vote by cutting back on opportunities for companies to manipulate the election process with delays and frivolous litigation. From the day they're hired, companies still have every opportunity to communicate with employees about the pros and cons of having a union. But corporate-backed extremists are pushing a Congressional Resolution that would overturn the NLRB's new election procedures – They're trying to pay back their Big Business donors by slashing workers' rights on the job.

Let your senators know that voters won't stand for this senseless attack. It only takes 60 seconds – Please make your phone call now to stop S.J. Res. 36!

We know that calls aren't easy to make, but we need you to weigh in. The stakes are simply too high to stay on the sidelines. If passed, S.J. Res. 36 would:

  • Resurrect the barriers workers face when they want a simple up-or-down vote on forming a union, giving an unfair advantage to law-breaking CEOs.
  • Encourage costly delays and litigation, paving the way for employers who want to retaliate against workers.
  • Make it even harder for employees to form a union and negotiate for fair pay and benefits, weakening the middle class and our chances at a brighter economic future.

This is just the latest in a relentless series of attacks on the NLRB by politicians in Congress who are desperate to dismantle the agency and collective bargaining rights. Rather than working together to create jobs and jumpstart our economy, these legislators are pushing divisive policies that put working families on the chopping block.

They won't let up until even the most modest workplace protections have been eliminated. But with just one call, you can help stop this attack in its tracks.

Tell Congress not to reverse progress for workers. Urge your senators to vote against S.J. Res. 36.

Thanks for all that you do to stand up for workers' rights.

Hilary, Kim, Susan, Liz, Zoe, Michael, and the American Rights at Work team
