Unions Just Got A Christmas Present From The NLRB That Negatively Affects ALL Workers

1 comment
Many people are outraged over a new rule handed down by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) today that not only makes unionization of private companies easier for unions but it forces employers to hand over private information of employees.  Anyone who has seen unions in action knows nothing good will come of this. Their behavior often goes beyond bullying and is sometimes violent. 
Employers and worker advocates are blasting the National Labor Relations Board for tilting the union election process in Big Labor’s favor on Friday.
The NLRB finalized the so-called ambush election rules on Friday, which will speed up the timeframe of elections. The new set of rules passed on party lines with two Republican appointees on the five-member board dissenting. NLRB Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce, a former union attorney, hailed the decision as the path to modernization.

“Simplifying and streamlining the process will result in improvements for all parties. With these changes, the Board strives to ensure that its representation process remains a model of fairness and efficiency for all,” he said in a release.
Critics of the rule, ranging from employers to Republican lawmakers, have said that the policy gives labor an unfair advantage. While unions can spend years preparing for an election through petition campaigns, employers will have only a few weeks to address the potential consequences of unionization. Workers will not get to hear both sides of the issue, according to National Retail Federation vice president David French.
“These men and women will be forced to make a decision that could drastically change their workplace environment without adequate information and time to consider the issues before them,” French said in a release.
House Republicans said that the administration’s actions will have economic consequences for workers and employers. House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R., Minn.) and Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions Subcommittee Chair Phil Roe (R., Tenn.) said in a statement that the rules “cripple workers’ free choice” and said that legislation is needed to curb executive “overreach.”
