O’Brien Testifies at Senate Hearing on Unlawful Anti-Union Activity
Updated On: Mar 08, 2023
Mar. 8, 2023 | WORKERS' RIGHTS | Today, Teamsters General President Sean M. O’Brien testified at a hearing held by the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP). The committee hearing — “Defending the Right of Workers to Organize Unions Free from Illegal Corporate Union-Busting” — was initiated by HELP Committee Chair Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in response to unlawful anti-union activity at Starbucks, Amazon, and other multi-billion-dollar corporations. “There are no meaningful consequences for businesses and CEOs like Starbucks and Howard Schultz when they break our labor laws,” O’Brien said. “When any employer — be they rail carriers, package companies, or coffee shops — gets away with repeated abuse of American workers, the legislators who let it happen are complicit in these crimes.” O’Brien gave extensive testimony to senators about the various ways that corporations break the law with impunity and shut down operations in response to union organizing and collective bargaining efforts, often with no consequences.
