DISCRIMINATION AND UNION DISPUTES AT SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER

DISCRIMINATION AND UNION DISPUTES AT SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER

One of the stalwarts of the liberal image for protection of workers is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the Alabama-based civil rights legal advocacy group.  However, recently its long-standing president was dismissed and there were rumors of discrimination issues.  More recently, in late 2019, an affiliate local union of the Communications Workers of American attempted to become a bargaining representative at SPLC, but SPLC's Board of Directors voted unanimously to proceed with the union vote rather than voluntarily recognize the union.  Union organizers accused SPLC of hiring a "union avoidance" law firm to resist the unionization attempt, but the union won the final vote anyway.  The union claimed that SPLC was acting counter to its traditional values.
