NLRB Under Heavy Attack

Here they come! The nation's ever-determined anti-labor forces have opened a new front in their battle to seriously weaken the union rights of American workers. Their latest target is the National Labor Relations Board – the NLRB – which since 1936 has enforced the nation's basic labor law, the National Labor Relations Act. The act has been largely responsible for the growth of U.S. unions and the American middle class. Republican politicians and such powerful organizations as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers aren't happy about that. They're now aiming to cripple the law as well as the NLRB.

The National Labor Relations Board clearly is doing its job of giving workers and their unions vital protections that those who complain about the NLRB would deny them.
