STATEMENT: CAP Commends the White House Task Force Report on Worker Organizing and Empowerment

Washington, D.C. — Today, the White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment published a report that issues a set of recommendations to promote worker organizing and collective bargaining for federal employees and workers employed by public and private sector employers. Following the release of the report, Karla Walter, senior director of Employment Policy at the Center for American Progress, issued the following statement:

Today’s release of the report by the White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment demonstrates President Biden’s commitment to rebalancing the scales between working people and corporations. President Biden has already taken action to guarantee that infrastructure spending creates good union jobs; raise wages; improve the lives of government contract workers; and ensure workers from all walks of life can access federal employment. By enacting the reforms included in this report, the government will use the full extent of its executive and administrative authority to build power and support for the rights of working people.
