In an article published in Society for Human Resource Management on May 7, 2021, Partner Peter Spanos was quoted discussing the executive order President Biden signed on April 26 to establish a White House task force to boost unionization.
The task force keeps a campaign promise, said Spanos. Biden's campaign specifically promised creating "a cabinet-level working group that will solely focus on promoting union organizing and collective bargaining in the public and private sectors" within the first 100 days of his administration.
The article goes into detail discussing the task force’s next steps, its high-profile members and goals.
"At first, the task force will address using existing regulations and federal programs to promote worker organizing and collective bargaining within the federal government," Spanos said. Then, the task force will address new policies aimed at unionization in the private sector and employees of state governments.
