Testimonials

I think you provide excellent resources to us employers, especially those of us that are seriosly concerned about potential unionization efforts at our organizations.
F. Fernandez

As a current target of a union organizing campaign, I highly value this site to provide me any new information regarding the Card Check Bill or anything that could be of value in combating what is unquestionably the most undemocratric and biased procedure and battle I have ever encountered. Representing oneself is difficult enough and I appreciate all that the LRI does.
