Union Bailout Update – December 2015

warren

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

As if the Fight for Fifteen wasn’t enough, the retail, food service and cleaning industries face another spectre in the form of the “Schedules That Work Act” introduced by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Under the bill, employees are given the “right” to have more say in:

The number of hours the employee is required to work or be on call The times when the employee is required to work or be on call The location where they work The amount of notification the employee receives for schedule assignments Minimizing fluctuations in the number of hours scheduled on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Union Bailout Update

The NLRB’s ambush election rules went into effect last week and it’s still too soon to gauge the impact. There has so far been no surge of petitions and it may be several weeks before we have any real understanding of the new length of the average election period.
