English term or phrase: rolling back labor unions
"liberty" was a virtual synonym for rolling back labor unions and progressive taxation, a fig leaf for the class interests of the Du Ponts and the B.F. Goodriches.
"libertad" era un sinónimo virtual para las asociaciones obreras retrógradas y la tributación progresiva, la cortina de humo para los intereses de clase de los DuPonts y los B.F. Goodriches.

el retroceso de los sindicatos


Explanation:
Creo que en castellano queda mejor sustantivar:

Sindicatos evalúan “retroceso” en últimos dos años
Beatriz Castillo
Redacción Diario Co Latino

A pocos meses de cumplirse el segundo año de gestión del Presidente de la República Mauricio Funes, los sindicatos consideran que bajo su administración han “retrocedido” en sus reivindicaciones.
