Labour Law Policy Paper (2011)

Labour Law Policy Paper (April 2011)

AFL policy paper presented to AFL 47th Constitutional Convention, April 28 to May 1, 2011

Earlier this year, we saw attacks on labour rights and labour laws begin in Wisconsin after the election of a Republican governor and state legislature. Not content with seeking cuts to pay, benefits and working conditions, these Tea Party Republicans sought to eliminate the right of unionized public-sector workers to engage in collective bargaining in all but very limited areas. The conflict soon spread to other states including, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and New Jersey.
