Neutral Arbiter or Union Lackey


LegalBriefs articles have question whether the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has exceeded its mandate to be a neutral arbiter of issues between employers and labor unions. Now, a federal judge has accused the NLRB of “serving as the litigation arm of [a union] and a co-participant in the ongoing organization effort of [that union].”

Prior LegalBrief articles commented on how the NLRB board has adopted one-sided rules without authority. Rules, incidentally, which were later overruled by the Court. Time will tell whether the NLRB will re-adopt those rules.

Now, we have a court questioning whether the NLRB is moving from its impartial investigation and enforcement functions and is now merely a union advocate. The Washington Free Beacon has written about this opinion in the article at the link below.
