Card Check: One Congressman Not Letting Down His Guard

By April 29, 2010Labor Unions

As Shopfloor reminded our readers earlier this morning that even though the Employee Free Choice Act’s legislative prospects look dim, organized labor is intent on enacting the flawed legislation’s dangerous provisions through other means, such as the National Labor Relations Board.

On Wednesday, Rep. John Kline (R-MN-2) reiterated his concern about the recess appointment of Craig Becker to the NLRB and the increasingly activist role he expects the NLRB to take in reshaping America’s labor policy.

“Union leaders have made their intentions for the Board crystal clear,” he wrote. “They view a friendly Board as their back door path to changing workplace organizing law. And the friendlier the Board, the better.”

Congressman Kline is the ranking Republican member on the House Committee on Education and Labor and is particularly well-suited to highlight the threat an activist NLRB poses to American manufacturers and employers.
