Biden task force releases report to strengthen labor unions

Associated Press

A Biden administration task force has issued a set of recommendations that could make it easier for federal workers and contractors to unionize. The report released Monday includes 70 recommendations. The report argues that a decadeslong drop in union membership has coincided with a rising share of income going to the top 10% of earners. The report’s goal is to increase unionization in part through the heft of the federal government as an employer. The Labor Department reported last month that only 10.3% of workers belonged to a union in 2021, down from 20.1% in 1983. The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace business group calls the report “pro-union propaganda.”
