Nikki Haley called out Vice President Kamala Harris over what Haley said was a ‘power grab.’ Harris is pushing a new program to try to make it easier for federal workers to join unions.
Nikki said: “Kamala Harris’ ‘union drive’ is nothing more than a power grab that will crush worker freedom and empower labor bosses. When I was governor, we made sure workers’ voices were heard and that liberal union middlemen couldn’t intimidate them.”
Harris said the new policy “will remove barriers in the workplace,” before adding. “we’re going to ensure all current workers are reminded if they are eligible to join unions. All of this is part of a broader strategy to make the federal government a model employer.”
Labor Secretary Marty Walsh said the new program will make it easier for unions to organize federal workers.
According to Fox News, “The plan would direct federal agencies to provide information to applicants and new employees about unions during their hiring process. The plan would reportedly also allow unions to be part of new employee training sessions.”
The moves will include directing federal agencies to inform job applicants and new employees about unions during the hiring and onboarding process. Unions will also be allowed to participate in new employee training sessions.
Federal agencies will be required to enhance their communications to current employees and inform them about their right to join a union and the ways they can engage with their union.
Harris and Walsh, who are spearheading a White House labor task force established by Democratic President Joe Biden earlier this year, will unveil the effort during a roundtable session with workers, a White House official said on condition of anonymity.
Imagine barely getting by and going to the gas pump to fill up your tank and seeing that the prices increased again, only to be told by liberal elites to "lower your expectations."— Nikki Haley (@NikkiHaley) October 20, 2021
