You may have heard one of the early controversial NLRB actions was to deny Boeing the right to build a plant in South Carolina. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is investigating this outrage.
Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) said Friday, “The National Labor Relations Board and Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon have thus far failed to comply with a lawful subpoena. This refusal by NLRB to abide by the law further heightens concerns that this is a rogue agency acting improperly.
“The public has a right to know the truth about why a government agency would choose to take action to benefit organized labor that threatens thousands of non-union jobs in South Carolina while setting a precedent impacting manufacturers across the country.
“It is imperative that Congress get complete facts about NLRB’s decision-making process in this matter. Its continued refusal to fully cooperate will not deter this Committee as it moves forward in efforts to determine what occurred and to hold NLRB officials to account.”
Here, in part, is NLRB Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon’s response: “The NLRB did send 4,300 pages of documents which should provide sufficient information to allow the Committee to assess the legal merit of the Boeing complaint . . . full compliance with the subpoena threatens to undermine the Agency’s independence.”
Mr. Solomon is Acting General Counsel because he cannot be confirmed in the United States Senate. The President has also appointed, without confirmation, Progressive radicals to the NLRB board. They are, Mary Beth Maxwell, Craig Becker, Mark Pearce, and Amy Dean.
So We the People are to have no recourse or power concerning any NLRB act because of, “the Agency’s independence.” Outrageous and unacceptable. This stealing of America must and will be stopped.
