Bush Labor Board Refuses to Hear Us

At a time when working people are squeezed as never before, and Washington isnt listening to Americas workers, the Bush administration is making things even worse by slashing workers rights at every turn.

The National Labor Relations Board appointed by President Bush has refused to hear oral arguments as it considers three cases that could reshape basic workplace rights and further erode our freedom to form unions. This is an outrage that must be reversed!

The cases focus on the definition of supervisor. If that definition is broadened to include skilled, experienced workers who sometimes instruct co-workers, hundreds of thousands of employees could lose their contract protections and union rights.

As vital as these cases are, and despite pressure from Congress and the public, Bushs labor board has refused to hear oral arguments. In fact, the Bush board hasnt heard ANY oral arguments since 2001.

Please urge your members of Congress to tell NLRB Chairman Robert J. Battista to reverse the decision not to hear oral arguments in these critical cases.
