Anti-Union Operative Warns Business of Historic Rise in Labor Activism

Corporations may soon have to confront a revitalized and militant labor movement, an influential employer relations consultant warned in a recent memo to business leaders.

The memo, sent on April 20, anticipates the May Day protests by service sector, warehouse, and delivery workers around the country today, who have walked off the job to highlight poor work conditions and perilously low pay.

“This is the first time since the early 1980s where I sense significant interest by employees in ‘collective action’ and ‘3rd party representation,’” warned Rick Berman, a lobbyist who has waged war against labor unions on behalf of business clients for decades.
