The specific dispute between Boeing and the National Labor Relations Board may be over, but the issues it raised are not.
This month's decision by aircraft manufacturer Boeing to cut a deal with the International Association of Machinists (IAM) will likely result in President Obama's National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) dropping its unprecedented anti-free-market lawsuit against the company.
The House on Thursday passed a controversial GOP measure that calls for curtailing the National Labor Relations Board's enforcement power — a move that would undermine a federal complaint that the Boeing Co. illegally opened a plant in South Carolina.
As 9.1 percent unemployment plagues America this Labor Day, major unions are clashing with a Democratic administration with which they normally would march in lockstep. Echoing the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, at least seven unions are begging Team Obama to abandon regulations, statements and procedures that prevent jobs from being created or saved.
The National Labor Relations Board ignored a congressional subpoena on Friday that requested information about its lawsuit against Boeing for building a manufacturing plant in a non-union state.
Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican, has subpoenaed the National Labor Relations Board as part of his investigation of the regulatory agency's lawsuit against Boeing's new airplane-manufacturing plant in South Carolina, where it has created thousands of jobs.
For the professional bureaucrat, telling businesses where they can or cannot locate their operations might be the next logical step after telling them what they can or cannot pay employees. But for the entrepreneurs and businessmen who are keeping our economy afloat, the attempts of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to dictate in what states businesses can operate represent job-killing policies our economy can't afford.
A federal agency wants to dictate exactly where businesses can create jobs.
One picture, they say, is worth a thousand words. Sometimes you need only one number. Consider the latest monthly jobs report, which shows an uptick in unemployment from 8.8 percent to 9.0 percent. Yet it's another number I'd like to highlight.
President Obama's hand-picked appointees at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are delivering favors to the administration's Big Labor backers. In just the past two weeks, the board has taken steps to overturn the will of voters in two states and chill the speech of corporate chieftains who spoke out against the labor movement's thuggish tactics.
