CDW: SCOTUS Decision A Victory For Employees, Employers and Separation of Powers

Coalition lauds Court’s ruling on Illegal NLRB appointments

WASHINGTON, D.C. // June 26, 2014 // Today, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW) hailed the Supreme Court’s decision in Noel Canning as a victory for employees, employers, and most importantly for the role of Constitutional separation of powers. CDW was a leader in the legal fight against the administration’s attempt to illegally place nominees to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) during a recess of the Senate, which would otherwise provide advice and consent on the process.

CDW chairman Geoffrey Burr said, “CDW and our hundreds of member organizations are deeply satisfied that our strategic and legal efforts have been successful. While the practical implications of today’s ruling are not yet entirely clear, we are proud to have successfully defended the Constitution against a reckless endeavor by the administration on behalf of its greatest special-interest patron in Big Labor.”
