That’s what those in the Obama administration would lead you to believe. Last week the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said that Barack Obama did NOT have the authority to appoint members to the National Labor Relations Board without the “normal” conformation process because the U.S. Senate was still in session. But hold on there one unionized minute there judicial branch!
Current NLRB chairman Mark Gaston Pearce has stated that the NLRB will just ignore the courts and adhear to the Empirical Barack Obama because HE believes that the ruling will be overturned sometime in the future and Obama’s will…will prevail.
“The Board respectfully disagrees with today’s decision and believes that the President’s position in the matter will ultimately be upheld. It should be noted that this order applies to only one specific case, Noel Canning, and that similar questions have been raised in more than a dozen cases pending in other courts of appeals.
In the meantime, the Board has important work to do. The parties who come to us seek and expect careful consideration and resolution of their cases, and for that reason, we will continue to perform our statutory duties and issue decisions.”
Well isn’t that just grand…A union attorney is going to disregard a ruling because he doesn’t agree with it. Well maybe the fact that when a non-union entity brings a case before the NLRB for “careful consideration” they usually find that either they aren’t considered at all or are made to pay a hefty price for being non-compliant in some shape fashion or form. And well there are so many cases before the NLRB that unions need “careful consideration and resolved” so union employers can get to work on electing the next Democrat to higher office…using the lowest tactics possible. Oh you crazy guys in the judicial branch…what were you thinking? Uphold the law?
