    Issa Subpoenas NLRB for Boeing Documents, Internal Communications

    Rep.

    Obama's NLRB Pushes "Snap Elections" for Union Gain

    Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has been aggressively reinterpreting the law to foist unions on workers—whether they want them or not.

    It’s hard to imagine Uncle Sam telling Walt Disney where to make movies or McDonald’s how many hamburgers to make, but if you take a look at the case of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) versus Boeing, you’ll see that the federal government is trying to do just that: … More

    Morning Bell: Obama's Attack on Private Industry

    You might think that a U.S. company’s decision to expand its manufacturing facilities and create 1,000 new jobs here at home — rather than overseas — would be hailed by the Obama Administration as a step in the right direction, especially with nine percent unemployment. You’d be wrong. Instead, President Barack … More

    SEIU's White House Visits Are Paying Off

    While most Americans were enjoying a weekend away from work, President Obama kept busy Saturday afternoon, appointing one of Big Labor’s lawyers to a post at the National Labor Relations Board. The recess appointment of Craig Becker was expected—despite the Senate’s bipartisan rejection of him in February. The White House … More

    Craig Becker: Big Labor’s Big Ally

    It’s hard not to sympathize with organized labor—at least to some extent. After all, during the 2008 elections, unions donated roughly half a billion dollars to Democrats, and so far have few legislative victories to show for their efforts; the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), the Respect Act, and the … More
