KENNEDY ON NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD DECISIONS
Today, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, released the following statement in response to several recent decisions made by the National Labor Relations Board.
"The NLRB under this Administration is apparently bent on continuing its highly politicized anti-worker decisions that overturn long-established precedents and undermine basic rights of employees across the country. The Dana Corporation decision is particularly troubling. By reinterpreting the law to discourage voluntary recognition of unions, the Board is creating needless additional conflict and confusion in the workplace and further silencing the voice of the American worker. Action by Congress is obviously needed to restore the intent of the law and protect workers' freedom to choose a union. The long-respected National Labor Relations Board can't be allowed to become a National Labor Resistance Board."
