Fund the NLRB!

Yellow striped backround, white text with black outline: "Tell your Senator Fund the NLRB" White text DSA Labor logo below

We need immediate congressional action to protect workers, like folks at Amazon, Apple and Starbucks, from retaliation as they speak out and fight to organize their workplaces. Use this form to easily email the House and Senate and let them know workers need them to fund the NLRB!

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) was established by the National Labor Relations Act to run union elections, enforce labor laws related to collective bargaining and to investigate and prosecute Unfair Labor Practices that occur. Since 2014, the funding for the NLRB has remained static - in real terms, this means that there are fewer resources and fewer staff available to run elections and investigate Unfair Labor Practices claims. Meanwhile, petitions to form a union increased by 58% in the first half of 2022, compared to the same period the year before. Likewise, reports of Unfair Labor Practices increased by 18%.

We know that unions have a higher approval rating now than they've had in decades - 71% of Americans approve of unions, according to Gallup. But for too many workers, access to a union is out of reach because corporate interests use every tool in their toolbox to stop workers from organizing.

Thousands of working people in a variety of industries are standing up and demanding their rights at the workplace - but without a fully funded NLRB, the laws that protect these brave workers cannot be enforced, leaving workers at risk of intimidation and retaliation without a legal remedy.
