Congressman Ben Quayle released the following statement after US District Judge David Norton ruled against the National Labor Relations Board's mandate that employers post notices regarding union formation. Judge Norton's reasons for rejecting this mandate closely reflect Rep. Quayle's reasons for introducing HR 2833 last year. HR 2833 would reverse the posting requirement.
"I'm glad to see Judge Norton's ruling. The NLRB has worked steadily under the Obama Administration to increase its power and reach and it's becoming clearer by the day that they have overstepped their mandate. This posting requirement is unnecessary, it's a burden on businesses and worst of all, it's an attempt by the NLRB to promulgate rules it has no authority to make.
"After the NLRB's egregious actions toward Boeing, it's very clear that the agency is out of control. HR 2833 reverses the absurd posting rule and restores needed balance to the NLRB. I hope that the NLRB will heed Judge Norton's ruling and withdraw this illegitimate rule"
