Unions battle employers that use arbitration to curb worker rights

Unions battle employers that use arbitration to curb worker rights

When the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit joined the Seventh Circuit on August 22 in declaring certain arbitration agreements were overly broad for denying worker rights, the decision struck fear in the hearts of corporations everywhere.

And it certainly struck the nervous system of their lawyers. Fisher Phillips, a gigantic firm (33 offices, 350 attorneys) whose central practice is representing employers, headlined the case as "Employers Lose Latest Battle In National War" and bluntly tells employers this decision is their "most bruising loss in the ongoing war involving class action waivers."

Verizon Workers Need Your Help

Verizon Workers Need Your Help

This morning, working people at Verizon went on strike. It’s never good when working families have to take this step, but Verizon workers felt they had no choice.

They’re fighting to create a better workplace for themselves and those who come after them. They aren’t going to give up until Verizon ends its push to send jobs overseas, stops intimidating Verizon Wireless workers trying to create a better future for themselves and their families, and drops its demands to cut retirement benefits, gut job security and make workers move away from their homes and families for months at a time just to keep their jobs.

Click here to immediately sign our petition to tell Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam, "Enough is enough. Settle a fair contract with working people at Verizon and Verizon Wireless now."
