house Bill H.R. 6922

Should Union Employees Have Whistleblower Protections?

Argument in favor

Labor union employees should have the same whistleblower protections as other workers. This is essential to root out corruption and empower union employees to report improper behavior in their organizations, which benefits all involved.

Unions need to be regulated too... if the unions member don’t police their own fat cats, then they’re just as corrupt as the companies they fight against for fair wage living and benefits

Turning in wrong doing in the work place or government is something that is necessary and should be protected

Argument opposed

Labor unions should be able to take actions to retaliate against whistleblower employees who report misconduct in the union. There’s no need for a federal law to protect union whistleblowers.

In theory, this is a great idea. The way the GOP want it is just to dredge up dirt on unions without equal transparency for the company

While I initially support this measure, I am very very weary because the federal government has historically hated unions and found any means necessary to halt their effectiveness under the guise of fairness. I can ONLY support this measure if there is abundant protections for union rights in the writing and absolutely no hidden language allowing the federal government to enforce unfair punishments.

    It’s a no brainer. Anyone who reports misconduct should be protected from retaliation.

    I support protection for whistleblowers, but solely focusing on unions and not companies or other organizations is a telling sign.

    If Unions are to be taken seriously, they need regulation as well. Standing for a Union is an honorable thing as a worker in the middle class, but without rules Unions are disastrous.

    Common sense... if the law actually works as simply as it reads.

    Unions are the reason why so many companies have left the United States in search of lower paying workers. That is a free market and capitalistic world we live in but unions need to be severely regulated. They claim to protect workers but then throw them away when it affects the union hierarchy. If we as decent minded people cannot show the unions that control a vast majority of the industrial sector that we deserve better than they can provide, than unions should be dismantled. On top of that, this bill helps protect what we are calling “whistleblowers” now but in reality it is for the protection of those who are doing things right. Relaying information to the authorities on injustices of the system within the union. If we cannot be protected from the evils of a union but are forced to participate in one, than you’ll never be freed from its Communist hands. Pass and sign.

    People who witness unethical behavior that hurts others should absolutely be protected. It’s called “Doing the right thing” Lets get back to valuing doing the right thing. It’s being ethical and having a moral compass. Unfortunately in short supply in this country right now.

    Unions are the only way this country has left to avoid a violent class revolution. If the Billionaire's Club is smart, they'll embrace that, and quit trying to eliminate unions in the workplace. After all, if abused workers can't strike, what recourse have they left but to riot?

    All whistleblowers should have protection from retaliation, firing, demotions, etc. They have the courage to come forward with wrongdoing and should be rewarded, not punished.

    Yes. Wrong doers can't be counted on to tell on the truth when they do wrong. Whistleblowers need to be protected.

    Good luck with that. Union bosses are in bed with many Democrat politicians therefore this is unlikely to pass, especially if Democrats win the House.

    U S Labor leader-Walter Reuther would be ashamed and infuriated by what has become of his Union that blood was shed for.... To protect the union workers and defend them to the end !!
