In particular, Gamesa Technology Corporation is recognized for its willingness to partner with employees and allow them to form unions without interference. The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights’ has worked to expose FedEx Ground’s unfair labor practices, and Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has supported numerous worker-friendly labor policies.
The American Rights at Work Education Fund is an educational and outreach organization, which works in concert with American Rights at Work, to promote the freedom of workers to form unions and bargain collectively. The organization’s award is named after Eleanor Roosevelt, a long-time union member who was instrumental in the passage of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and in its inclusion of the right to organize as a fundamental human right.
