The Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act (included in S. 140) Would Breach Minimum International Labor Standards

On January 10, the House will vote on S. 140, which will include H.R. 986, the
Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act. This bill would strip workers of protections they currently enjoy under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) to organize and collectively bargain at

to pragmatically addressing this issue.
