The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is a federal agency charged with enforcing and interpreting the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The NLRA, which was enacted in 1935, established the right of employees to join or refrain from joining a union and governs relations between most private businesses and unions.
In recent years, Board Members appointed by President Obama have accepted a number of cases and made alarming statements and decisions that work to enact key portions of the misnamed Employee Free Choice Act and EFCA-lite plans. In many instances, the Board appears to closely follow the agenda of Big Labor at the expense of employees and employers and the ability of employees to make informed decisions—free from coercion—about whether to join a union.
