NLRB Rules Rigged By Unelected Bureaucrats, Says CDW

Employers Express Disappointment At Agency’s Unfair, Unwise Decision

WASHINGTON, D.C. // NOVEMBER 30, 2011 // Today, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, which represents over 600 employers, associations and other organizations operating in every Congressional District, released the following statement from Chairman Geoffrey Burr:

“Today’s decision by two unelected bureaucrats on the National Labor Relations Board was a clear win for union bosses and a big loss for employees, employers, and those fighting to get our economy working again. Instead of putting fairness first, the NLRB bowed to special interests by rigging longstanding rules governing union-representation elections so that employees have less information and employers have fewer legal rights and a diminished due process.

“We call on both chambers of the Congress and the President to sign legislation such as the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act to right the wrong we’ve seen today.”
