Obama’s pro-union poster mandate in legal jeopardy

By Phil Klein, The Washington Examiner

As the U.S. Supreme Court mulls the constitutionality of President Obama’s national health care law, a federal court has halted another attempted power grab by his administration.

Last August, the National Labor Relations Board, which Obama packed with union lawyers from the private sector, issued a new rule requiring 6 million businesses to hang up posters advertising workers’ rights to organize.

The posters themselves read like a marketing campaign for unionization. Out of seven bullet points on the poster, the first six explain collective bargaining rights under the National Labor Relations Act, including the rights to strike and picket. Only the last point informs workers of their right not to join a union.
