Statement from AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler on the report from the White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment
The Biden–Harris administration delivered another victory for working people today with the release of the first report from the White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment. This unprecedented report recognizes the critical role that unions play in creating a fairer economy. By taking steps to give more workers the right to organize and bargain collectively, the administration is once again demonstrating that it is committed to using its power to support unions.
Now, Congress must do its part. In order to fully empower workers, it is time to pass both the Protecting the Right to Organize Act and the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act, which will ensure that every worker who wants to join a union may freely do so. We are committed to working with the administration to implement these recommendations, and we look forward to the task force’s next report in six months.
