Study: Obama National Labor Relations Board a “Rogue Agency”

Shocker (no, not really!): Obama’s National Labor Relations Board “overturned established precedent in a largely partisan manner.”

  1. Labor

Just like Obama’s IRS and Department of (In)Justice, which also disregarded the law and long-standing practice as part of his “remaking” America.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

President Barack Obama’s top labor arbiters have overturned a cumulative 4,500 years of legal precedent over the past eight years, according to a new study.

The National Labor Relations Board, an agency that oversees union elections and workplace disputes, has issued numerous new rules that changed longstanding agency practices, as well as issued decisions that overturned decades of precedent.

In all, the board has overturned 91 precedents, wiping out more than 4,000 years of case law—averaging more than 45 years per decision; the agency’s new election rules overturned a combined 454 years of protocol, according to a study from three labor attorneys at the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace and Workplace Policy Institute.…

Heather Greenaway, spokeswoman at the Workforce Fairness Institute, said that the NLRB has acted as a “rogue agency” during President Obama’s tenure.

“The Obama-era NLRB will be remembered as an anti-jobs agency that rewarded Big Labor cronies by rolling back years of long-standing precedent,” she said in a statement. “We are hopeful that the incoming administration will reverse the damage caused by the Obama’s labor board by … promoting stable bargaining and economic growth, while also unwinding the damaging and job-killing rules leveled by pro-union bureaucrats.”

Recall the Supreme Court smacked Obama down when he tried to use a “recess” appointment to put some radicals on this board.

The good news is that soon this lawless regime and its gangsta government will be out the door. The bad news is that his cavalier disregard for the rule of law and the Constitution has established a precedent, at least to some extent. As always, we will need to be vigilant to make sure that President Trump doesn’t decide to pull and Obama.
