The rights of working people to form a union are under attack. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is proposing a new rule that would limit the ability for workers and union representatives to communicate effectively when a union election is scheduled. This will make the process to form a union LESS democratic. Who is pushing for this change? Notoriously anti-union organizations like the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. are claiming that sharing phone numbers and e-mails with the union violates workers’ privacy.

It is very important that the NLRB receives as many comments as possible on the rule from different people in their own words during the public comment period.
