A White House task force charged with coming up with recommendations to boost workers’ rights and empower labor unions met for the second time Oct. 7.

Vice President Kamala Harris, who hosted the meeting, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, the group's vice chair, and other Cabinet members talked through guidance on how best to enhance workers’ ability to unionize, NY1 reported.

President Joe Biden’s April executive order establishing the White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment said the group’s mission was “to mobilize the federal government’s policies, programs, and practices to empower workers to organize and successfully bargain with their employers,” particularly in parts of the country “restrictive labor laws” and those that lack worker protections.
