Forum Today Examines Attacks on NLRB, Workers' Rights(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)—the key agency in ensuring workers’ rights—is facing an unprecedented assault from partisan politicians and the 1 percent. This morning, panelists at a forum at the AFL-CIO will look at how workers can challenge attacks on the NLRB and highlight how the ongoing assault against the Board fits into the larger corporate-backed political agenda to degrade workers’ rights on the job, attack collective bargaining and gut middle-class jobs. Speakers include Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) and Rep. George Miller (D-CA). The panel of labor law and workers’ rights experts will be moderated by Harold Meyerson, editor-at-large of The American Prospect and includes American Rights at Work Executive Director Kimberly Freeman Brown, AFL-CIO Organizing Director Elizabeth Bunn, professor Julius (Jack) Getman, University of Texas School of Law, and  David Madland, director, American Worker Project, Center for American Progress Action Fund. - image courtesy of
