According to Nikki Haley, Kamala Harris’ labor union push is nothing more than a power grab. During an interview on Wednesday, the former ambassador to the United Nations discussed Harris’ effort to organize federal workers into unions.

Haley warned this will lead to liberal union bosses gaining power, not individual employees. Earlier on Wednesday, Harris unveiled new policies aimed to “remove barriers to organizing in the federal workplace.”

“We, as it relates to new hires, have decided and are committed to making sure they will be told at the time of being hired if they are eligible to join a union,” Harris stated. “They will be given contact information and they will be informed of their rights.”

Every worker deserves the choice to join a union—and our country is better when more workers are union members. As Chair of the White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment, I’ll lead our efforts with @SecMartyWalsh to help workers organize and build power.

The Biden administration is calling on all employers to take similar steps. However, Haley suggested making sure worker’s voices are heard and that “liberal union middlemen couldn’t intimidate them” is what’s important.
