Foundation praises passage of worker freedom legislation

Today, the House adopted legislation that will protect workers from coercive unionization efforts by requiring companies that receive taxpayer incentives to hold secret ballot elections for union representation.

Senate Bill 362, authored by Sen. Mike Hodges, R-Brunswick, cleared the Senate earlier in the session and is headed to Gov. Brian Kemp for his signature.

Georgia Public Policy Foundation President and CEO Kyle Wingfield released this statement following passage of SB 362:

“As Georgia continues to grow, it’s imperative that we safeguard the policies and principles that have attracted so many people and companies to our state. High on that list is the flexible labor market that helps make our economy so dynamic and resilient. We applaud Gov. Brian Kemp and the General Assembly for prioritizing the needs of workers, employers and taxpayers through this common-sense legislation. We are confident it will help to keep Georgia working.”
