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 from the CFPB, addressing new labor rules by the 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 NADA 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 the auto dealer franchise system.
- The franchise system is an important part of the auto industry’s overall success. The working relationship between dealers and manufacturers that exists has been carefully crafted across the country and the franchise laws help maintain balance. International nameplate automobile dealers have a powerful, positive impact coast-to-coast on their neighborhoods, cities, and states. Dealerships are the heart of the auto industry. They are committed to serving their communities and are more than a place to shop for and buy a new vehicle; they are employers, sources of charitable giving, tax bases, and service centers. Auto dealers also provide consumer safety through recall and, warranty service.
