NLRB Report Shows Need For Decreased Funding, Undercuts Call For “Ambush” Elections

By Fred Wszolek, Workforce Fairness Institute

When the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon released the agency’s fiscal year 2012 operating report, he provided even more evidence that the NLRB is over-funded and there is absolutely no legitimate need for the Board’s “ambush” election rule.

Less Work Should Mean Less Money

What are the facts in Solomon’s report?  Just look at this fiscal year compared to the one before:

·         Total case intake decreased by three percent;

·         Unfair labor practice case intake decreased by 2.5 percent;

·         Representation case intake decreased by 6.5 percent;

·         Petitions filed in certification and decertification cases decreased by 5.7 percent.
