Katie Packer, Exec Dir, Workplace Fairness Institute: “High Road”


I spoke with Katie about the yet-to-be-unveiled Obama policy called the “High Road Contracting Policy.” This proposed policy will “score” all federal contractors before the contents of a bid are viewed using criteria designed to maximize the likelihood of an eventual union award: hourly workers with a “living wage”, health insurance, an employer-funded retirement plan and paid sick days.

The net effect will be to compel workers to join unions in order to get work.

Yet another payback in the works by the Obama Administration.

    I would like to point out that Katie Packer is not the ED of the Workplace Fairness Institute but the Workforce Fairness Institute. These are two very different organizations that have very different philosophies about the role of unions in the workplace and in our society. The real Workplace Fairness Institute can be found at http://www.workplacefairness.ca
