Congressman honored for protecting workers

An 'advocate for a 21st century workforce'

The Alliance for Worker Freedom honored U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett this week with its fourth annual "Guardian of Worker Freedom" award at a private, informal ceremony at the U.S. Capitol. The workers rights organization selected 126 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and 30 U.S. Senators for the award.

This session, the "Guardian of Worker Freedom" award was given to representatives who voted for freedom and opportunity for workers against special interest and regulatory control. The restoring of funding to the Office of Labor Management Standards, opposing a forced and mandated minimum wage, striking forced TSA union provisions and voting against cloture on the Employee Free Choice Act, were all tracked in this session.

"When it comes to keeping American workers and our economy competitive, Rep. Bartlett is a tremendous advocate for a 21st century workforce," executive director Brian M. Johnson said.
