Georgia GOP Moves to Punish Employers Who Voluntarily Recognize Unions

HeadlineMar 22, 2024

In more labor rights news, Georgia Republicans passed a bill that penalizes union-friendly employers. The legislation would bar workplaces that voluntarily recognize unions from receiving state subsidies. Republican Governor Brian Kemp backs the law, but it is expected to face tough legal challenges. The president of the AFL-CIO, Liz Shuler, called the measure “appalling,” adding that it “violat[es] long-held precedent established by the National Labor Relations Act.”
