The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and other civil rights groups urged lawmakers to give government employees collective bargaining rights during the organization’s “People of Color Justice and Unity Legislative Day” on May 28 in Raleigh.

Ajamu Dillahunt, of Hear Our Public Employees Coalition, said black workers earn higher wages and receive better workplace protections if they belong to a union.

North Carolina and Virginia are the only states that prohibit collective bargaining by state and local government employees. North Carolina’s ban is almost 50 years old.
