[PDF] National Express Group’s Diminution of Labor Rights in the U.S.

NEG’s [National Express Group] labor policies in the U.S. fall well below the level expected under internationally recognized labor standards. The Workplace Rights Policy does not appropriately incorporate a single major international standard, and every one of its provisions has the effect of either strengthening management’s right to oppose unions or making it more difficult for employees to exercise their fundamental labor rights…The [positive] example of First Student demonstrates…that the company, its employees, customers and shareholders would all benefit from improved labor practices. Changing its policies would not only bring the company in line with core labor standards, it would also limit any further reputational damage.
