Federal regulations have an astounding impact on the ability of dealers to compete and survive. Whether combatting overbearing financial regulations that threaten dealers’ economic viability, addressing new labor rules by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), or preserving fair arbitration rules for dealers, AIADA is the voice of dealers throughout the federal government.
AIADA opposes federal financial regulatory overreach.
- AIADA has combatted efforts by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to place additional restraints on dealers, including the restriction of dealer lending discretion. In response to these CFPB efforts, AIADA has worked with the National Automobile Dealers Association to strengthen a dealer’s ability to comply with fair credit laws through the Fair Credit Compliance and Policy Program, and urged accountability for the CFPB.
AIADA supports fair labor policy.
- The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued a slew of decisions in recent years aimed at restricting employers’ right to due process. AIADA supports a level playing field for both employers and employees which allows employees to have a full understanding of both sides of the issue before making a unionization decision.
AIADA supports fair arbitration policy.
- AIADA opposes efforts to ban pre-dispute arbitration agreements. Past legislation would have negatively impacted the quick and cost effective resolution of customer disputes with dealers by effectively banning all pre-dispute arbitration agreements in the sale or lease of a motor vehicle. AIADA knows the importance of this issue to the dealers and continues to monitor for similar legislation.
