    National labor unions are profiting off of the expanding recreational and medicinal cannabis industry, and the most egregious offender is the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW). This week, the National Right to Work Foundation (NRTWF) asked the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to put a stop to this scheme.  According to the […]

    Just in time for the holidays, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has delivered several rulings that should inspire Christmas cheer at workplaces across the country. Below are just a few examples: For starters, the NLRB has moved to accept a settlement to resolve “dozens of cases” brought against McDonald’s Corp. Pending approval by a […]

  • Joint-Employer Rule Makes Headway at the NLRB

    The battle to overturn an Obama-era labor rule is still underway. Luckily, it looks like the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) might have overcome their final obstacle. The Board was initially able to reinstate the definition of joint-employer status through a decision they handed down in 2017. However, the Inspector General determined that their decision couldn’t stand. The reasoning? […]

  • Another Obama-Era Roll Back at the NLRB

    Posted on Sep 20, 2018 by LaborPains.org Team

    In yet another effort to roll back Obama-era labor policy, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has proposed a joint-employer rule that would undo the Board’s 2015 decision in Browning-Ferris. The proposed rule would reinstate 30 years of precedent that required “direct” and “immediate” control over employees’ working conditions to qualify for joint-employer status. The […]

  • Elizabeth Warren Conveniently Ignores Her Own NLRB Standard

    As we’ve written before, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is determined to undermine President Trump’s nominees to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). For example, Sen. Warren has pressured NLRB nominee William Emmanuel, a former labor lawyer for Littler Mendelson, to recuse himself from any case involving class action lawsuits. Her claim is that Emmanuel’s involvement raises conflict […]

  • Union Lawyer David Rosenfeld Reveals His True Motives

    For months, we’ve suspected that union attorney David Rosenfeld is not truly interested in “conflict of interest” at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). He’s just opposed to any rulings that are not overwhelmingly pro-union. Well, our suspicions were recently confirmed. A partner at the pro-union law firm Weinberg, Roger, & Rosenfeld and longtime Elizabeth Warren […]

  • Union Lawyer’s Skeletons EXPOSED

    Posted on Dec 15, 2017 by LaborPains.org Team

    We wrote recently about the hypocrisy of Democrats’ attacks on President Trump’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) nominees. It’s not just politicians leading the charge. David Rosenfeld, a partner at the pro-union law firm Weinberg, Roger, & Rosenfeld, has allied himself with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in these attacks. But as it turns out, Rosenfeld isn’t so […]

  • Hypocrisy Alert! Democrats Attack NLRB Nominee

    Posted on Aug 02, 2017 by LaborPains.org Team

    One of the hottest issues before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) right now involves class action lawsuits. In the 2012 D.R. Horton case, the NLRB ruled that employers may not mandate arbitration agreements barring employees from joining together in employment-related class action lawsuits against the employer. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has since refused to throw its weight behind the NLRB […]
