Congressman Schiff on Congressional Workers’ Right to Organize

“Congressional staff are some of the most dedicated, selfless, and talented individuals I have ever met. We could not do our jobs for our constituents without them and their labors. But for too long, their commitment to serving the American people has been taken for granted, resulting in high turnover and a workforce that does not always reflect the full diversity of America.

“That's why I'm proud to support a resolution to recognize congressional workers' right to organize. Every worker deserves the opportunity to collectively bargain for fair wages, better hours and benefits, and a brighter future – and staffers who work tirelessly in Congress are no exception. The movement for labor justice belongs in the halls of Congress, as it does in every community and workplace.”
