Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement after House passed H.R. 1120, the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in the Labor-Management Relations Act:
Wilson stated, "The passage of today's bill is a victory of our nation's workforce. Last year's unconstitutional Presidential appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) further shows that it is not used to protect our nation's workforce and creates uncertainty in the workplace. Instead, President Obama's "Big Labor Bully" consistently abuses its authority by overregulating and restricting right-to-work states' ability to determine what practices best serve its workers and employers. Due to the current nature of the NLRB, Congress must take action to ensure that hardworking Americans are treated fairly and do not suffer future unreasonableness as a result of its dysfunction. As a proud original co-sponsor of this legislation, I am very pleased with its passage and encourage the Senate to take action immediately."
