WFI Applauds Senate Vote To Stop “Ambush” Elections
Both U.S. House & Senate Undertaking Action; Obama Administration’s Veto Threat Demonstrates More Unquestioning Loyalty To Big Labor
Washington, D.C. (March 4, 2015) – The Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) today expressed its support for the U.S. Senate’s vote to stop President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from imposing “ambush” elections on Americans. This comes in the face of President Obama’s veto threat against this measure, demonstrating yet again that he chooses to stand with Big Labor bosses over workers and small businesses.
“The NLRB has overstepped their bounds time and again, and congressional action as a check on the executive branch is badly needed and entirely warranted,” said Fred Wszolek, spokesperson for the Workforce Fairness Institute. “It is disappointing, but hardly surprising, that President Obama announced his intention to veto a resolution overturning a harmful rule imposed by his labor board even before it came to a vote. During his tenure, the NLRB has systematically thrown their weight behind Big Labor, and the President apparently cannot resist an opportunity to pander to union bosses despite the negative impact it will have on both employees and employers. Due to the completely unrestrained actions on the part of the Obama Labor Board, we are happy to see the U.S. Senate acting to rein in administrative bureaucrats and their job-killing actions.”
