Although I do not own a company any more, and never did have more than four employees, I never had a good interaction with a union. I appreciate this site because it's good to know that business owners can get help in dealing with unions. I believe that in spite of some good results from union efforts in our nation's history, the bottom lien score for unions overall are about a minus-5 on a scale of minus 10 to plus 10. If I had a large company here in Florida, I'd be watching out for unions very much, because our Governor is on the make for a presidential bid, and he's a RINO. Even though our state is RTW, that can change. It is good to have a resource like the Labor Relations Institute for companies that need help, especially when our so-called President has never seen a law he won't break for his own advantage.

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.
