House Panel OK’s Bill To Limit NLRB.


The House Education and the Workforce Committee on Wednesday passed another bill designed to curb the power of the National Labor Relations Board.

The Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, introduced earlier this month by Rep. John Kline, would strike down multiple NLRB rulings, most prominently one on the timing of union elections.

H.R. 3094 passed 23-16 on a straight party-line vote and is expected to go to the House floor for a vote sometime this winter. The prospects for passage in the Democratic-led Senate are poor.

“Big Labor has turned to an NLRB that is all too eager to advance their extreme agenda,” Mr. Kline, Minnesota Republican and the panel’s chairman, said in a statement. “Labor policies that have served our nation well for years are being torn down in a desperate effort to expand the power of union leaders.”  get the full read from the Washington Times here.
