I would suggest making this information louder and more often. If enough of this info had been disemminated sooner, we may not be facing this situation today. Keep up the good work.

This has been very helpful and informative. I have sent this info to others as well. I think it is accurate and timely!

NLRB’s Lafe Solomon Discloses Ex Parte Communications

The non-profit and nonpartisan group Cause of Action recently received additional information from its FOIA requests from last year confirming that Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon and NLRB Chair Wilma Liebman engaged in ex parte communications regarding a media strategy in the Boeing case. You can read the emails (with nearly all the good parts redacted…) here.

No matter which side of the aisle you stand, I think it is clear that all Board members need to get very clear about the communications they have both outside the agency and internally, especially with the General Counsel. While the Inspector General is very focused on Republican members these days (not to say he shouldn’t investigate those communications – there is no excuse for these types of communications from any members) it is obvious that all Board members could take these rules more seriously. The credibility of the Board is already shot after the railroading of the streamlined election rule last year. As more of these ex parte communications are revealed (and I’d guess there will be more) the lower that credibility goes.
