Entry Title Date
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."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board March 3, 2015
Tim Scott, R-SC
"Madam President, we are here today because the NLRB has once again overstepped the line. I am not sure it is a red line, but I do know this—that the Board has become a hyperpartisan, pro-union entity, and that does not benefit the American people."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board—Continued March 3, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"The new NLRB rule makes modest but highly important changes to improve the overall consistency and efficiency of the election process, allowing workers to vote for or against the creation of a union in a fair and timely way. This rule is long overdue, and in Connecticut I have seen—and in my personal experience with the NLRB—how important it is."
