Senate Dems Introduce ‘Anti-Union’ Tax Bill

On May 12, Sens. Casey (PA), Wyden (OR), Murray (WA), Booker (NJ), and Van Hollen (MD) introduced legislation that would alter the tax code to prohibit companies from writing off “anti-union” activities as business expenses. The “No Tax Breaks for Union Busting Act” would classify even lawful activities, such as so-called captive audience meetings, as political speech, thereby making it ineligible for tax deductions.

This may indicate there will be an effort to include labor policy in a reconciliation bill in the future.
