House Subcommittee Holds Hearing on National Labor Relations Board


On February 14, a House of Representatives subcommittee heard arguments on whether to peel back some of the National Labor Relations Board actions taken under the Obama administration, including the controversial union election rules and joint employer liability expansion.  Lawmakers heard from both employers and union advocates.   The hearing was called, “Restoring Balance and Fairness to the National Labor Relations Board.”  Subcommittee Chair Tim Walberg (R-MI) said that in the weeks and months ahead, the subcommittee will do everything they can to “turn back this failed, activist agenda and restore balance and fairness to the [NLRB].”
