Workforce Fairness Institute Issues Statement Concerning National Labor Relations Board Nomination Hearings
Time For Posturing Has Ended & Time For Restoring Workplace Balance Has Arrived
Washington, D.C. – Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) undertaking hearings for Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel to the National Labor Relations Board:
“The work being undertaken by the Senate labor committee with respect to the nominations of Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel to the National Labor Relations Board could not be more important. For nearly one decade, this so-called independent agency has operated as an arm of Big Labor rendering decisions and rulings that have undone decades of legal precedent, while punishing employees and employers. With a fully functional board, including Kaplan and Emanuel, balance can finally be restored to workplaces and the taxpayer-funded handouts to union bosses will end. Both Kaplan and Emanuel are eminently qualified for the posts and it is our hope the Senate undertakes its constitutional role of advice and consent judiciously, but without undue delay so that workers and small businesses can have confidence their government plays a constructive not corrosive role in American workplaces.”
