I just wanted to take a moment and personally thank you for lending us your expertise and hard work in helping [Company Name Withheld] remain Union-Free. You were instrumental in helping me stop the Teamsters, who had been previously batting 1000 against [Company Name]; winning several elections against this past year. With a resounding 50% margin of victory, I believe we sent them a clear message that we intend to remain union-free.

Breaking: Terence Flynn Resigns from NLRB

On Friday, May 26 Board Member Terence Flynn submitted his resignation to President Obama and NLRB Chairman Pearce. Flynn, who has been under pressure from Democrats to resign after an investigation into communications between Flynn and former Chairman Schaumber (who Flynn used to work for) and former Member Kirsanow. As the Board said in its press release yesterday:

His resignation is effective July 24, 2012.  He has immediately recused himself from all agency business and has asked that the President withdraw his nomination for Board Member of the NLRB.

Mr. Flynn was sworn in as a Board Member on January 9, 2012. He joined the Board in 2003 as Chief Counsel to Member Peter Schaumber, and had previously been in private practice. The letter of resignation, dated May 25, was delivered via FAX and email on May 26.

Earlier today, Chairman Pearce informed NLRB employees of the resignation and, on behalf of the entire Board, thanked them for their “hard work and commitment to excellence through even the most difficult circumstances.” He intends to issue a statement after communicating with the staff on Tuesday.

Pearce fails to mention that among those “most difficult circumstances” is the poisoned political atmosphere at the Board. No word on when the investigation into that is supposed to begin, but we won’t hold our breath.
