President Biden continued to polish his pro-labor bona fides on Monday of this week, when he issued an Executive Order on Worker Organizing and Empowerment that seeks to increase union organization and strengthen the hand of organized labor. The order establishes a Task Force to be chaired by Vice President Kamala Harris and vice-chaired by Labor Secretary Marty Walsh that includes the executive leadership of most departments across the federal bureaucracy. The broad charge to the task force is to identify statutory, regulatory or other changes that would make policies and programs “a more effective means of supporting worker organizing and collective bargaining.” In addition, the order directs the task force to identify policies, practices and programs that could be used to promote worker power in areas of the country with hostile labor laws, for marginalized workers (including women and persons of color) and hard-to-organize industries (emphasis added). . .” The Task Force is further directed to report to the President within 180 days with specific recommendations.
