Senate Moves to Ban Mandatory Arbitration with Defense Contractors
Congratulations to freshman Senator Al Franken (D-MN) and the Senate Judiciary Committee for taking some concrete steps toward leveling the playing field for employees and individual consumers in disputes with influential companies and corporations. The Senate approved a measure banning the use of Mandatory Binding Arbitration clauses in employment contracts by defense companies that contract with the federal government. The amendment in question even garnered the support of a few Republican senators, passing 68-30.
This is another step in the right direction for all of us and I, for one, am grateful!
