New "Flex Pack" Available from the Labor Project for Working Families
The Labor Project for Working Families has launched a new Flex Pack—a toolkit designed to help unions with organizing, bargaining, and working on legislation around issues of workplace flexibility. The Flex Pack includes facts on the importance of flexibility to workers, FAQs, tips for unions, legislative options, and examples of contract language. It also explains how to differentiate between real flexibility that works and “fake flextime” policies that are mere window dressing. You can download or order hard copies of the Flex Pack from the Labor Project for Working Families’ Flex Pack webpage.
