Obama’s hand-picked pro-union National Relations Board knocked down in court again.

Posted on: June 16, 2013

Obama’s National Relations Board has again been knocked down in court for one of their rulings.    The fact is that the first court ruling made this particular board  inoperable and illegal and ALL of their rulings to date unlawful.  Of course the Obama administration is appealing this ruling and it is now working it’s way up the courts chain of command probably to the Supreme Court.  I certainly hope it goes that far because the National Relations Board was not meant to be partisan but to be an impartial arbiter between business and labor.  It has worked well up to Obama and his grab for power.  This latest ruling is another win for We the People.   Unions represent a minute number of American citizens and many of those are thru forced membership.  When people have been given the choice of whether or not to join a union many more opt out than in but states like Washington, Oregon and Illinois among a few others actually make union membership a necessary part of employment.

Unfortunately for We the People the largest segment of the population to become unionized are the public workers, or government workers.  these are the people who are supposed to be working for us and we tax payers pay their wages.   In most cases wages far in excess of the average wages earned by the tax payers themselves for similar work.  Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin fought the unions and won thus breaking their strangle hold on the public.  You all may remember the union members taking over the capital building and rioting and the Democrat legislators leaving the state so they couldn’t vote.  It was a big deal and even caused a recall of the governor and another election which he again won!  Now We the people are going to have to break the strangle hold our federal workers now have on us.  The IRS lady worker who has taken the fifth rather than answer questions to our Congressmen about the IRS targeting conservative groups and who  refused to resign but is now on administrative leave but still collecting her $170,000 plus bonuses salary is a prime example of federal workers being unionized.  It is almost impossible to fire a federal unionized worker!  This has to stop.

It is for reason like this that the National Labor Relations Board appointed by Obama must also be stopped because their aim and all their ruling to date have been to strengthen the unions.

National Labor Relations Board Smacked Down in Court Once Again

June 15, 2013 at 3:33 pm

This week, a federal appellate court struck down the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) “poster rule,” finding that the agency does not have the authority to issue such a rule.

The poster rule requires more than 6 million employers to post notices at work informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act, undercutting employers’ free speech rights to engage in noncoercive speech about unionization. The NLRB threatened to make the failure to comply with the poster rule an unfair labor practice and evidence of an employer’s “antiunion animus” for claims before the NLRB.

In early May, the D.C. Circuit struck down the poster rule, finding that it violated the free speech rights of employers. This week, the Fourth Circuit agreed that the poster rule is invalid, finding that the NLRB exceeded its authority in issuing the rule. This is a much broader ruling, and the Fourth Circuit held that the NLRB’s role is limited to conducting representative elections and addressing unfair labor practice charges.

Unlike many other federal agencies, the court stated, the NLRB lacks the authority to promulgate notice requirements because Congress never intended to delegate to the NLRB “proactive rulemaking.” While the NLRB could require employers who had been adjudicated to have committed unfair labor violations to post such notices, “[n]o provision in the [National Labor Relations Act] requires employers who have not committed labor violations to be subject to a duty to post employee notices.”

Yesterday’s ruling by the Fourth Circuit highlights one reason why President Obama recently turned his attention to packing the D.C. Circuit with judges of his choosing (despite its low caseload compared to other overworked courts): It hears many suits involving federal agencies, and it has repeatedly smacked down the Obama Administration.

From EPA regulations to non-recess appointments and the NLRB poster rule, the Obama Administration has not fared well before the D.C. Circuit, which has laid the foundation for other courts to follow suit. But the confirmation of three nominees to that court could change the balance.
