Ruling Gives Unions Leverage In Negotiations With Franchises
A ruling yesterday from the National Labor Relations Board gave contract workers and employees of franchises a lot more leverage to unionize.
The NLRB’s decision gives those employees the right to negotiate a union contract not only with a franchise owner, but also with the larger parent company. It has implications in the fast food industry, which is locked in a national debate about worker pay and benefits.
Michael Regan of Bloomberg News discusses this with Here & Now’s Robin Young.
