NRF applauds NLRB's decision to rescind micro-unions

US based National Retail Federation (NRF) has welcomed the decision of National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to reverse an extreme ruling in ‘Specialty Healthcare’ that allowed union leaders to gerrymander workplaces through micro-unions. The decision comes close on the heels of the ruling to overturn the expansive joint-employer standard.

“The Obama-era board’s move to validate micro-unions created division in workplaces, undermined retail operations and limited opportunities for hardworking employees for the sole purpose of empowering Big Labor. It’s clear this NLRB is serious about restoring common sense to the rules governing America’s workplaces,” NRF senior vice president for Government Relations David French said.

The retail sector is the largest private sector employer in the US, employing 42 million people. Contributing $2.6 trillion to annual GDP, retail is a daily barometer for the US economy.

NRF is the world’s largest retail trade association, representing discount and department stores, home goods and specialty stores, Main Street merchants, grocers, wholesalers, chain restaurants and internet retailers from the United States and more than 45 countries. (RKS)
