    Default The Trump NLRB’s Anti-Labor Day

    And the amazing thing is that we actually have union members that think our POTUS is good for labor!!!

    Employee rights advocates say this Labor Day’s family barbecues and union solidarity picnics will take place in the shadow of a Trump administration that has quietly stacked the National Labor Relations Board with anti-labor members. The federal agency is far less well-known than the IRS or EPA, but its five presidential appointees issue rulings with often far-reaching consequences for America’s working men and women. The NLRB was created in 1935 to oversee collective bargaining and protect labor standards; the majority of its current board have worked for years with pro-employer firms and worked on behalf of industry.

    Under the Trump administration, says Henry Willis, a veteran employment rights attorney at Schwartz, Steinsapir, Dohrmann & Sommers, “They are rolling back rights as fast as they can.”

    Even before Trump was elected president, labor advocates had long lamented an NLRB process weighted towards employers who have the power of the paycheck and an array of tactics to shut down union organizing drives. A 2009 study, published by the liberal Economic Policy Institute think tank, found that during 57 percent of union election processes, employers threatened to shut down their workplaces; and during 34 percent of those organizing drives, employers fired workers and used one-on-one meetings with employees to threaten them.
    Moreover, Bronfenbrenner adds, when an administration changes it’s not uncommon for boards to reverse some preceding labor decisions, but that “there’s a different tone to this board in that it is reversing long-held law. Not just changing rules but reversing decisions that had been agreed upon for a long time.”

    In other words, the NLRB under Trump represents a tectonic shift in the way the agency has traditionally operated.

    Federal agency rules misclassifying employees is not a violation

    Trucking companies that misclassify drivers as independent contractors are not violating federal law, according to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

    Three of the agency’s four board members held that an employer’s mere communication to its workers that it believes they are independent contractors does not violate the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) if that opinion is later found to be wrong.
