The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) applauds the Senate’s decisive action in passing a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) misguided joint employer rule.

Lauren Williams, Associate Vice President-Government Relations at NAW, issued the following statement:

“Yesterday’s Senate vote delivers a clear bipartisan mandate, rejecting the NLRB’s harmful joint employer rule and protecting American businesses and workers from more red tape. We call on President Biden to sign this CRA and firmly support small businesses. We sincerely thank Leader Mitch McConnell and Senators Bill Cassidy and Joe Manchin for their strong leadership.”
