2009 Labor Day List Employers

In the American Rights at Work Education Fund’s fifth annual Labor Day List: Partnerships that Work, we recognize successful partnerships between employers and their employees’ labor unions that are working well in an uncertain global economy.

Employers showcased in this year’s report walk the walk when it comes to respecting their own workers’ rights, and now they are going a step further by standing up on behalf of all U.S. workers. Every business profiled herein has spoken out on the need for meaningful labor law reform to ensure men and women have decent opportunities and their rights protected. Through their support of the Employee Free Choice Act, legislation making it easier for workers to choose to form a union, a new generation of visionary employers is laying the foundation for the financial well-being of workers and businesses alike.
