Blumenthal Applauds Labor Relations Board Proposal in Support of Workers

(Hartford, CT) – Senator Richard Blumenthal released the following statement today in response to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proposal regarding union elections:

"The proposed rule by the National Labor Relations Board is a crucial step toward increasing fairness in the workplace and instituting transparent union elections. Protecting the rights of workers in Connecticut and across the country to join together and collectively bargain with their employers without fear of intimidation and in good faith is central to the growth of the middle-class, and this rule brings us closer to that goal."
