American companies tried to from the types of 'worker councils' Volkswagen wants in Tennessee in the 1980s. But the NLRB declared them all illegal in the 1990s.
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear an oral argument Monday regarding the constitutionality of President Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.
On April 12th the House passed H. R. 1120, the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor Management Relations Act, on a narrow 219 to 209 vote.
The National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) Summary of Operations for fiscal year 2012, released last week, shows an agency that is significantly over-funded. In 2010, the Obama Administration increased the agency’s budget even though it previously operated with a fiscal year-end surplus.
Reasoning Behind Unconstitutional Recess Appointments Comes Into Full View
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is accustomed to a “by any means necessary” approach. That’s how they’ve tackled issues like “ambush” or “quickie” elections, which was since overturned by a federal judge and the formation of micro-unions, which is operable today. So, is it really surprising that the NLRB’s lead attorney is in hot water over ethics violations?
For just over a year now and since the failure of the Employee ‘Forced’ Choice Act (EFCA) to receive a vote in the 111th Congress, union bosses have been desperate to obtain the “payback” they believe is owed to them. Big Labor is beside itself that its membership numbers continue to dwindle despite giving half a billion dollars in campaign contributions to President Obama and Congressional Democrats.
As of yet, President Obama’s non-recess appointees to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) have not participated in issuing any major decisions.
Labor unions, like the United Nations, are all too often judged by what they are envisioned as being -- not by what they actually are or what they actually do.
After a few weeks of recess, Members of Congress will return this week to address a number of issues, including the budget, transportation bill and Buffet Rule. One of the issues that will likely come to a vote in the U.S. Senate in the coming weeks is a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act, which seeks to reverse a recent regulation promulgated by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
In an era when Americans simply want the government to leave them alone and focus on getting the economy going so businesses can create jobs, the message seems completely lost on Big Labor’s agents at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
