President Obama’s Other Labor Board Is Forcing Workers to Unionize

by Capitol Confidential

Most Americans have heard of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) through its ill-conceived scheme to prevent Boeing from building a new plant in South Carolina because the Palmetto State has a right-to-work law.

But how much do most Americans know about Obama’s other labor board?
Most Americans haven’t heard of President Obama’s other labor board, the National Mediation Board (NMB). This board is specifically focused on labor relations between the railroad and airline industries. And just like the NLRB, the NMB is aggressively pushing Big Labor’s agenda.

    • @WE ARE POWER Same 'pathetic tactic' is used in every state to elect our president, and every other elected official....majority of those casting votes rules the day.

      Too lazy to vote and participate in your future? Then your right to complain is suspect. How much effort does it take to vote in a union election? Some personal responsibility goes a long way and silences criticism of this rule.

  • OBAMA'S other labor board? What a MORONIC statement.

    The National Mediation Board (NMB), established by the 1934 amendments to the Railway Labor Act of 1926, is an independent agency that performs a central role in facilitating harmonious labor-management relations within two of the nation's key transportation modes--the railroads and airlines.

    Pres. Obama, like EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT, has ZERO control or input into the workings of the NMB you misinforming tool.
