Working Lunch: Data shows unions likely pulling back from corporate campaigns

Plus, a look at the pay equity landscape

The labor community seems to be easing up on filing unfair labor practice complaints with the Labor Department. Does this mean their organizing efforts are running out of gas? Align Public Strategies takes a look at that.

In addition, a study shows companies are seriously examining their pay data and working toward correcting any inequities. Are restaurant companies following suit? The team discusses the landscape with regard to pay equity.

Finally, Dawn Sweeney, CEO of the National Restaurant Association, announced her intention to retire at the end of the year after leading the industry for the last 12 years. The Align crew talks about her tenure, the legacy she leaves at the organization and what may be next for the NRA. The episode ends with this week’s legislative scorecard.
