The chairman of the National Labor Relations Board hopes to have another round of regulations in place by the end of the year that would make it easier for unions to establish and win representation elections in workplaces.
Undeterred by Republican protests, Mark Pearce said he will urge the board to approve the new rules now that it has a full component of five members after President Barack Obama bypassed the Senate to fill three vacancies.
“We keep our eye on the prize,” Pearce said in an interview with The Associated Press. “Our goal is to create a set of rules that eliminate a lot of waste of time, energy and money for the taxpayers.”
