DC Appeals Court Strikes Down Obama’s Recess Appointments
Thankfully, a week that has gone awry for conservatives on the legislative front has ended with great news. Aside for Saxby Chambliss announcing his retirement from the Senate, the DC Appellate Court has tossed out Obama’s recess appointments he made on January 4, 2012. Last January, while Congress was in a district work period, Obama made an end run around the Senate and appointed Richard | Read More »

With two vacancies at the five-member agency right now, due to a Supreme Court decision, a resignation by any member of the NLRB would automatically cripple the credibility-deficient NLRB.

The Union Agenda Part One: So, you think your Right-To-Work state is safe from unions?
There is, and has been since 2010, a concerted effort by union bosses to get their union-bought cronies in the U.S. Senate to end the filibuster. Why?

Union Hypocrisy: Local Teamsters Bosses Try Union Busting On Their Office Workers Seeking A Union
Why is the Teamsters union spending thousands of dollars on hiring lawyers to fight unionization of their own workers? Couldn’t the Teamster bosses just practiced what they preached and voluntarily recognized the Steelworkers and bargain a…you know…fair contract?

Witness Protection Program Needed: Obama’s NLRB Gives Unions License To Intimidate & Retaliate Against Witnesses
Notwithstanding the union-backed effort to end Senate filibusters, time and time again, both publicly and behind-the-scenes, Barack Obama and his union cronies and backers work to stifle–even purge and eradicate–any form of dissent if it does not benefit union bosses.

NLRB To Force Companies To Turn Over Employee Telephone Numbers & E-Mails To Unions?
As is often said, just as when any other salesperson doing door-to-door sales knocks at the door, targeted employees can invite the union organizers into their homes, or they can sic the chihuahua on them.

With Union Strike Threat Looming, ABC Vows Presidential Debate Coverage Won’t Be Affected
While it’s not like there are no other networks airing the presidential debates between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, a union dispute may cause some minor technical difficulties of ABC’s planned coverage of the debates. A division of the red-shirted Communications Workers of America, known as NABET, has been without a contract since early 2011. Now, according to the Wall Street Journal, NABET (which is | Read More »
Union-Controlled NLRB’s Top Attorney In Hot Water Over Ethics
The man who targeted Boeing last year for opening a non-union plant in South Carolina, sued Arizona (and threatened other states) for protecting their citizens’ right to secret-ballot elections, as well as generally done union bosses’ bidding over the last two years is in hot water over a breach of ethics. Lafe Solomon, the Acting General Counsel (he’s never been confirmed by the Senate) of | Read More »
NLRB To Union-Busting Teamsters: Stop Harassing Organizers For Wanting Their Own Union
Union bosses who pretend they’re fighters for the working class often are accused by their own employees of committing the same sins that they accuse employers of doing. Very often, when push comes to shove, union bosses become the worst kind of union busters there are–because they should know better. Take, for example, the Teamsters who, back in 2009, threatened to operate their union business | Read More »
Obama’s NLRB Gets Smacked Down: District Court Rules Arizona’s Secret-Ballot Amendment Is Constitutional
You may recall back in 2010, when Barack Obama’s union-appointees at the National Labor Relations Board began showing their true union colors, voters in Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah passed secret-ballot amendments to their state constitutions as a preemptive measure to thwart the Obama Administration’s (and unions’) efforts to pass legislation calling for unionization without elections. As a result, the union-controlled NLRB threatened | Read More »
Meet the Micro-Union
The National Labor Relations Board under Barack Obama has become a totally politicized entity intent on destroying free enterprise and advancing union interests across the nation. One of the NLRB’s latest schemes is to authorize “micro-unions.” Imagine going into a department store. With a micro-union, the shoe department of that department store could unionize. The rest of the store could be union free, except the | Read More »
The REAL Problem With the NLRB’s Ambush Elections Rule: Unions LIE.
Recently, a federal court smacked down Barack Obama’s union appointees at the National Labor Relations Board for the manner in which they imposed their ambush election scheme. The scheme is, however, far from dead as the union-controlled labor board is “determined to move forward” with the needless rules. While there is much opposition to the NLRB’s ambush election rules, few have yet to address the underlying | Read More »
Obama’s NLRB Recess Appointee Heads Back To AFL-CIO–With A Promotion!
It’s been five months since Barack Obama’s recess appointee to the National Labor Relations Board, SEIU and AFL-CIO attorney Craig Becker, stepped away from the union-controlled agency. Now, after a brief stint at Georgetown University, Becker’s headed back into the House of Labor—with a promotion from his previous AFL-CIO post. Prior to his time at the NLRB, Craig Becker was associate general counsel to both | Read More »
Defiant NLRB ‘Determined To Move Forward’ With Ambush Union Elections
On Monday, when the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia smacked down the Obama NLRB’s new “ambush” election procedures, the court made clear that the union-controlled labor board overstepped its bounds by imposing its new rules without a proper quorum (as required under a U.S. Supreme Court case). That, however, has not deterred the NLRB’s chairman (and union attorney) Mark Pearce from vowing to | Read More »
Obama’s NLRB Unleashes Ambush Elections on America’s Job Creators
On Monday, April 30th, Barack Obama’s union-controlled National Labor Relations Board will be imposing its new union election rules, designed to ambush unsuspecting employers. Since unions won over 71% of the 1595 NLRB-conducted elections in 2011, the NLRB’s radical departure from past precedent is neither necessary, nor warranted. Moreover, given unions’ legal ability to deceive workers into unionizing, it is believed the NLRB’s doing union’s | Read More »
