One of the most informative sites I use as ab HR Director for 24 hospitals

As a current target of a union organizing campaign, I highly value this site to provide me any new information regarding the Card Check Bill or anything that could be of value in combating what is unquestionably the most undemocratric and biased procedure and battle I have ever encountered. Representing oneself is difficult enough and I appreciate all that the LRI does.

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.
