This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

WorkerCenters is a front group operated by Berman & Co. Berman & Co. operates a network of dozens of front groups, attack-dog web sites, and alleged think tanks that work to counteract minimum wage campaigns, keep wages low for restaurant workers, and block legislation on food safety, secondhand cigarette smoke, drunk driving, and more.

WorkerCenters describes itself as "a project of the Center for Union Facts (CUF), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to keeping a watchful eye on America’s labor union movement" according to WorkerCenters' website.[1] In reality, the Center for Union Facts is another secretive front group of Berman & Co. for individuals and industries opposed to union activities.

According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, WorkerCenters "disseminates a message that worker centers are labor unions by another name."[2]
