Reid Statement On NLRB’s Proposed Rule Change

Washington, D.C.–Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement today on the National Labor Relations Board’s proposed rule change to regulations governing labor union representation:

“Today’s proposed rule change is about fairness. It would help give workers the same ability to bargain for wages and benefits now enjoyed by CEOs – whose pay has skyrocketed while their employees continue to struggle. Despite my Republican friends’ track record of standing up for wealthy CEOs who ship jobs overseas, I hope they will join me in supporting a ruling that takes the side of the middle class.”
