The People’S Night June 15, 2015
Ken Buck, R-CO
"President Obama is working to fundamentally transform our laws without consent, granting citizenship to illegal immigrants, making recess appointments to the NLRB when the Senate is not in recess, and changing the healthcare law without an act of Congress."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board—Veto May 4, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"President Obama vetoed this resolution. I urge my colleagues to sustain that veto to ensure workers are able to exercise that right. The National Labor Relations Board, the NLRB, helps to ensure that workers have a fair up-or-down-vote. Unfortunately, too often big corporations take advantage of loopholes in the current election process to delay a vote on union representation."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board March 4, 2015
Thom Tillis, R-NC
"The concerns I have with this NLRB mandate is that it is another draconian example of what I consider to be the hyperpartisan business and labor environment the National Labor Relations Board has created over the last several years. The NLRB is advancing a pro-union agenda nationwide in the guise of government policy. The NLRB‘s proposed policy is simply not necessary, particularly in light of the fact that some 70 percent of union organizing elections already succeed under the NLRB‘s current policy. Clearly the pro-union majority of the National Labor Relations Board is not satisfied with unions winning 70 percent of the time. They now want to run up the score so the unions win 100 percent of the time."
National Labor Relations Board March 4, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"This whole fight isn’t about business versus workers. We would have to search long and hard to find a business that opposes what the NLRB did. It is all the anti-union rhetoric of the Republicans here in the Senate."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board—Continued March 3, 2015
Elizabeth Warren, D-MA
"But in the remaining handful of cases, the rules on how to resolve these concerns have turned into a mess. Over time, a hodgepodge of different rules for resolving these dispute has emerged in each of the country’s 26 NLRB regions. To fix this, the NLRB recently finalized one national set of rules that sets out clear procedures for resolving these issues. In other words, the NLRB is trying to make dispute resolution clearer, more efficient, and more consistent from region to region."
