This will be the third time that the NLRB has changed the standard within a decade . This whiplash makes compliance painful , costly and difficult . Changes to important employment standards also harm the most vulnerable businesses and ICs the most , because these businesses have lower access to compliance resources .
CLDA joined with several other amici to file briefs in this case arguing that the Board should maintain the 2019 SuperShuttle standard . We were co-amici on a brief submitted by the American Trucking Association
, and we provided drafting input in a brief submitted by the Coalition for Workforce Innovation
where CLDA is a member along with many other organizations . Our opposition to NLRB ’ s obvious end-goal here has been clearly entered in the record , and the board received dozens of amicus briefs from other interested organizations as well , including many organized labor organizations such as the AFLCIO , the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and the SEIU .
State Developments and Advocacy
In addition to our work on the Federal front , CLDA is developing a new task force to help pinpoint states where our advocacy efforts can make a positive impact for our members . This State Legislation Task Force will work to identify states which have a high density of CLDA members , where existing laws are not favorable to the business models our members prefer , and where positive contributions can be made by CLDA ’ s efforts .
The task force will also work to develop model legislation which can be pursued in these states in order to shift the legal or regulatory frameworks in a given state to support greater freedom for logistics workers , greater ability for logistics and delivery businesses to contract freely with workers , and lower barriers to entry for those wishing to make a living in this industry .

. If you are interested in supporting our efforts financially , then consider donating to the CLDA Advocacy Fund
. The fund supports all CLDA ’ s advocacy and government affairs efforts – entirely through donations from members .
We have some members who give a regular monthly donation , and some who prefer to give once a year , or on a quarterly basis . Any amount helps our efforts . Our largest donors support the Advocacy Fund to the tune of a few thousand dollars a month , but probably the most common contribution is a recurring monthly $ 100 donation made automatically by credit card . Many of our most dedicated CLDA volunteers count themselves in this “ monthly $ 100 club ” and their donations do really help us to keep doing what we are doing every month .
If you want to give a single donation , you can do so here
. Our system is set up to take one-time contributions from $ 25- $ 2000 through that portal . If you would prefer to set up a recurring monthly donation , we can set you up as a recurring credit card donor if you would like .
