Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) issued the following statement, regarding the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act (H.R. 3094). This legislation represents yet another Republican tactic to dismantle unions and strip away workers' rights. H.R. 3094 would deny workers their right to a free and fair election to form a union.

9-27-11 slide 1

Good evening!  Thank you John for that introduction and the North Central States Council of Carpenters for hosting this discussion.  It is so good to be with you tonight to talk about the number one challenge facing America: creating good jobs.

September 20, 2011 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, once again this Tea Party Republican majority is determined to ignore the jobs crisis in this country and instead focus the energy and efforts of Congress on busting unions and attacking the federally protected rights of workers to organize. This legislation is a direct assault on workers' rights in order to protect the profits of one corporation -- Boeing. This legislation essentially tells 14 millions unemployed Americans that their needs are irrelevant as long as there is a CEO in America who wants to crush a union.

February 28, 2011 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, I stand today in solidarity with the working men and women of America.

There should be no doubt that there is a war going on right now against workers, unions, and middle class Americans who want more jobs.

In Wisconsin, Ohio, and here in Congress, workers rights are under attack by union busting politicians.

February 19, 2011 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to H.R. 1 - legislation introduced by the House Republican majority that would cut over $60 billion in essential funding to America's communities without making a significant impact on this year's federal deficit.
