Kavanaugh Is A Threat To Workers
July 24, 2018
Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Kavanaugh, is a threat to Americans’ health care and women’s rights. Kavanaugh is also a threat to workers across the country.
Kavanaugh has consistently ruled in favor of businesses and against their workers:
Kavanaugh ruled against casino workers, allowing police to issue criminal citations against union protestors whom the casino said were trespassing.
Kavanaugh ruled against workers in a case granting the Defense Department the authority to temporarily curtail the collective bargaining rights of its civilian employees.
Kavanaugh was the only judge to rule in favor of a company that refused to bargain with its union and argued that most of its employees weren’t covered by collective bargaining law because they were undocumented immigrants.
Kavanaugh ruled that employers can require workers to waive their right to picket and order employees to stop displaying pro-union signs or wearing union shirts.
Kavanaugh issued the lone dissent in a ruling finding that SeaWorld had violated workplace safety standards in a case where a trainer had been killed by a killer whale.
