Obama’s Union-Controlled NLRB Thumbs Nose At Court Ruling, Chairman Vows To March Onward
Following Friday morning’s appeals court ruling that Barack Obama’s “recess” appointments to the National Labor Relations Board were unconstitutional, union attorney (and current NLRB chairman) Mark Gaston Pearce vowed to ignore the court’s ruling.
In a statement posted on the NLRB’s website, Pearce stated:
“The Board respectfully disagrees with today’s decision and believes that the President’s position in the matter will ultimately be upheld. It should be noted that this order applies to only one specific case, Noel Canning, and that similar questions have been raised in more than a dozen cases pending in other courts of appeals.
In the meantime, the Board has important work to do. The parties who come to us seek and expect careful consideration and resolution of their cases, and for that reason, we will continue to perform our statutory duties and issue decisions.”
“The parties who come to us seek and expect careful consideration and resolution of their cases…”
Mr. Pearce must be referring to union bosses ‘expecting careful consideration’ with his statement, because he surely couldn’t mean employers expect careful consideration before the union-controlled NLRB.
Heck, the vast majority of employers already know they face not much more than a kangaroo court with the NLRB.
That’s the reason so many employers are having to appeal their cases to the circuit courts these days.
“Truth isn’t mean. It’s truth.”
