TWU: Corporations should not be given tax breaks for union busting
Washington, DC – Today the No Tax Breaks for Union Busting Act, which would end the practice of allowing corporations to claim tax deductions for funds they spend on union busting, was introduced in the Senate. The following statement should be attributed to John Samuelsen, International President of the Transport Workers Union:
“Every working person in America today deserves the chance to freely and fairly form or join a union and have a voice in the workplace without fear of retaliation. Yet, even as workers raise their voices and join together, our laws remain stacked against American families and in favor of corporate greed.
“It is outrageous that corporations are currently given tax breaks for union busting. The No Tax Breaks for Union Busting Act would end this abhorrent practice, and help restore balance to our economy so working families have a fair shake. Taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize the efforts of employers to silence workers, and the federal government should not be incentivizing anti-union behavior.
“The TWU stands with working people across the United States in calling on Congress to pass this legislation and for the President to sign it into law as quickly as possible.”
