A federal attack on your rights at work.
by Mary Kay Henry, SEIU President
The “RAISE Act,” introduced by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), is yet another attempt to undermine the rights of workers to bargain collectively. The bill, which goes to a vote today, would take away employees’ rights to negotiate contracts that create a uniform, fair process for granting wage increases. Employers would be allowed to ignore what they agreed to in collective bargaining agreements – and that’s not fair.

The RAISE Act is an unnecessary attack on workers’ rights, and it undermines the fairness collective bargaining contracts bring to the workplace. We cannot allow Senator Rubio to deny unionized employees the right to raises that are granted free from discrimination, arbitrariness, and favoritism.
