Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–August 25, 2016. Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order Guidance and Regulations:
The AFL-CIO applauds the Administration for moving forward with regulations and guidance implementing the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order. This measure will make our contracting system more fair and accountable, which is good for working families, law-abiding employers, and communities. Companies that receive taxpayer funded contracts should obey the law and respect their employees’ rights, and with today’s actions, the Administration has taken an important step in moving that common-sense principle forward.
