    Top Republicans Just Filed A Bill To Eviscerate The National Labor Relations Board

    The creation of the National Labor Relations Board under President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the late 1930’s is what has made it possible for worker’s unions to force companies to accept representation, and the Republicans have been battling to kill it ever since.

    Now, with Republicans in control of Congress and the White House, a gaggle of the most conservative members of the U.S. Senate have introduced a bill to defang the NLRB forever.
    What these right wing activists are calling the “Protecting American Jobs Act” would strip the NLRB of its power to prosecute and to act as a judge in labor disputes.

    It would transfer the power to hear labor disputes to the already overcrowded federal courts, which would raise the legal cost of any action and ensure it would take a long time to be settled.

    Brought to you by your friendly republicans ... supported by a few union people on this board, and across America.
    I am sure they will fire off a letter exclaiming their dislike for this proposed legislation.

    For all the union men and women on this board, please read this story.
    It mentions something about winning, the NLRB and Trump ... but please don't rubber stamp it and say it's "fake".

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) began the process of confirming the first of Trump’s two nominees to the NLRB on Monday. When both nominees sit on the Board, a swift rollback of union rights is likely.
    While partisanship has shaped the NLRB’s decisions for quite a while, if Kaplan and Emanuel are confirmed, the Board will have a Republican majority for the first time in the post-Tea Party, take-no-prisoners era of GOP politics that began shortly after the Obamas moved into the White House.
    Republican governors like Scott Walker crusaded against unions in their states. Senate Republicans even attempted to shut down the NLRB entirely during the Obama presidency — an action that would have rendered much of federal labor law unenforceable.
    Get the pen out, write those letters and tell Mr. Trump how you want to him to preserve labor rights and law.
    I am sure he will listen.

    And now we have this 'Historic' Union vote in a Southern Red State at the Nissan Plant in Canton,Mississippi...The car company has been accused of running one of the ''Nastiest Anti-Union Campaigns in the Modern History of the American Labor Movement''. During organizing campaigns back in the 70s and 80s,management was told not to display any 'Favoritism' at all.Now,management walks around in Anti-Union T-Shirts and 'Threatens' Workers.The Union files Unfair Labor Practice and Management Delays...it's BS.And now the Republicans want to 'WEAKEN' the NLRB even further...where the Hell does it END?????????

    This is a time for all unions (construction, Breadmen , electric workers,AfL CIO, Teamsters etc) to work together as one and fight back. Remember SOLIDARITY WORKS. LET OUR VOICE BE HEARD AS ONE.

    Notice a lack of comments from any of the die hard resident republican and Trump supporters.
