Here We Go Again

From the NLRB.gov website: “In 1935, Congress passed the National Labor Relations Act, making clear that it is the policy of the United States to encourage collective bargaining by protecting workers’ full freedom of association. The NLRA protects workplace democracy by providing employees at private-sector workplaces the fundamental right to seek better working conditions and designation of representation without fear of retaliation.

NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT
Also cited NLRA or the Act; 29 U.S.C. §§ 151-169
[Title 29, Chapter 7, Subchapter II, United States Code]”

The entire document is available at: National Labor Relations Act | National Labor Relations Board website. 

The National Labor Relations Act defines who has a voice in this process. Historically, company and political interference was rampant and violent as it pertained to organizing. The Act enabled the National Labor Relations Board to protect we the people from all who would seek to dominate or silence us.

If you are not employed by VW, you don’t have to worry about how to vote.
