New NILRR Studies

The National Institute for Labor Relations Research (NILRR) has just released two new studies that make for interesting reading.

In Compulsory Unionism in Everything But Name . . . , NILRR connects the dots between an 11 year old AFL-CIO internal assessment on how Big Labor might destroy existing state Right to Work laws and the ongoing campaign by AFL-CIO state federations to advance so-called “Agency Shop” legislation to require non-dues paying workers under union contracts to pay agency fees to union locals.

Another new study, Why Are Workers Still Dangling in the “Blue Eagles’s” Talons?, questions why workers, over 71 years after the discredited National Recovery Act (NRA) was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, are still corralled into cartels similar to those the NRA established for businesses.
