NAW enthusiastically supports the decision by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas to vacate the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) joint employer rule. This ruling represents a significant triumph for both businesses and workers. In addition to our support for the case, NAW has actively worked to advocate for a legislative fix to address this pressing issue through our active involvement with the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace.
