2007 Labor Day List Employers

ldl07cover200.jpg In observance of Labor Day, American Rights at Work profiles successful partnerships between employers, their employees, and their unions in the third annual edition of the Labor Day List: Partnerships that Work.

This year's Labor Day List includes a cross-section of national and regional employers of varying sizes in a range of industries such as telecommunications, construction, and health care. All featured employers negotiated good contracts with their employees' unions and demonstrate a commitment to respecting workers' freedom to choose union representation. Many embrace higher labor standards than those mandated by current U.S. labor law.
