On Capitol Hill
NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons (far right) met with Minnesota Congressman John Kline (far left) to discuss issues surrounding the NLRB such as ambush elections and Boeing's plant in South Carolina.
Manufacturers and their employees rely on fairness and balance in our labor law system. Maintaining the time-tested balance between labor unions and employers is critical to economic growth and job creation. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), however, has undertaken an aggressive agenda that threatens jobs and economic growth. Its proposed “quick snap” election rules, its pending decisions, and its complaint against Boeing could have a more significant impact on manufacturers than the Employee Free Choice Act, which the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) helped defeat in Congress.
The NAM is committed to defending the rights of manufacturers and their employees and fighting changes to our labor law system that undermine employer-employee relations.
