FB: “Congressional Republicans are attempting to reverse Obama-era labor regulations holding parent corporations responsible for actions undertaken by franchisees.
House Education and Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R., N.C.) and 29 co-sponsors introduced the Save Local Business Act on Thursday, which would prevent companies from being held liable for labor violations committed by franchises or subcontractors. Foxx said that the legislation was intended to “correct wrongs that have been created in the past” by the Obama administration.”

“Robert Cresanti, president and CEO of the International Franchise Association, called the legislation “critical” to the economy. The joint employer standard set by the Obama board created uncertainty in the industry and Cresanti blamed partisan politics for the NLRB change. Many saw the joint employer liability as a hand out to unions. Under the previous precedent a union attempting to organize workers at a franchise business would have to win support at the local level. Shifting liability would give unions a path to organize at the national level, pressuring parent companies to deliver blanket unionization to all franchises that operate under their umbrella.”

Bloomberg: “About 2,000 protesters, including about 325 McDonald’s workers in restaurant uniforms, stormed though the company’s campus entrance at Jorie Boulevard and Kroc Drive in Oak Brook, according to the organizers, holding signs that said, “We Are Worth More” and “My Union My Voice.” The Oak Brook Police Department estimated the number was 1,000 to 1,500.”
