‘Worker Centers’ a Cover for Unions?

Roughly 200 so-called “worker centers” across the country are representing employees who work in everything from the fast-food industry to the taxi business.
But some key Republican lawmakers are asking if those centers are actually acting more like labor unions. The concern is that the rise of these groups has become a way around the rules that govern bona-fide unions — like requirements to submit financial filings to the feds every year.
House education committee Chairman John Kline, R-Minn., and Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., sent a letter this week to newly confirmed Labor Secretary Thomas Perez requesting that he clarify the situation.
“In the last decade, the line between so-called ‘worker centers’ and labor organizations has blurred. Today, many of these worker centers are dealing with employers directly on behalf of employees,” they wrote.
