With the appointment of three Big Labor allies to the National Labor Relations Board, the Obama administration is putting pro-union regulations in place that could cripple small businesses.
In NFIB's NFIB's Top 5 web series, Bonner looks at how NLRB is pushing an anti-business agenda:
- Possibly unconstitutional appointment of three Big Labor allies to the pro-union board. NFIB has filed suit to stop these appointments.
- Forcing employers to hang pro-union posters in the workplace outlining employees' right to unionize.
- Stifling economic growth by suing to stop a private company from opening a new facility in a right-to-work state.
- Authorizing ambush elections that shorten the time between scheduling and holding union election to as few as 21 days.
- Pushing for the creation of micro-unions that encourage unions organized by job position.
