Employee Voice, Unions, and NLRB Discussion
Based on what you read, discuss the following questions. Give arguments to support your views, respond to others, and expand the discussion in interesting new directions. Post on the Employee Voice, Unions, and NLRB Discussion Forum:
The article claims that NLRB restricts the free speech rights of employers to the detriment of employees and in favor of unions. Do you agree? Why or why not? Unions are one of the very few ways employees can get a voice in the U.S. workplace. Therefore, do you think that unions need some protection, especially when they are losing popularity? Why or why not?
How today’s unions help working people
Giving workers the power to improve their jobs and unrig the economy
Americans have always joined together—whether in parent teacher associations or local community organizations—to solve problems and also make changes that improve their lives and their communities. Through unions, people join together to strive for improvements at the place where they spend a large portion of their waking hours: work.

In the United States, this right is protect by the U.S. Constitution and U.S. law and also is support by a majority of Americans.
