From the desk of Stephen Cabot: If there was ever any doubt that the Obama Administration is pro-union, that doubt can now be extinguished. The President’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has stated it wants all companies to post notices and perhaps even disseminate e-mails informing employees of their right to join unions. So determined is the administration to do big labor’s bidding that this is the first time since the passage of the National Labor Relations Act in 1935 that the NLRB has demanded that employers post such a pro-union notice. Organized labor, which supported the election of President Obama to the tune of tens of millions of dollars, has been frustrated that congress has not passed the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). As a result, the NLRB has been diligently working to enhance opportunities for unions to organize the workers of as many companies as possible. This latest move by the NLRB is just one of many acts designed to promote the ongoing unionization of American workers.
