Labor Shorts: Exposing Union Bosses One Skid Mark at a Time

This week, to give break to the weightier milieu of the union agenda we wanted to lighten things up a bit by bringing back our ever-popular Labor Shorts and share some of the usual (and not-so-usual) shenanigans of today’s union bosses:


First things first:
  • The NLRB Scorecard: With the new, union-controlled National Labor Relations Board finally seated, we introduced the NLRB Scoreboard on the LaborUnionReport blog over the weekend to keep an unofficial tally of NRLB decisions, as well as general NLRB “stuff” (blogs and other souvenirs from the Land of Liebman and Becker).  If you have suggestions, blogs you’d like to see posted, tips, or see a case we haven’t posted, please give us a shout here.
  • NLRB Blowback: The business community is on edge, as Politico notes this morning, over President Obama’s appointment of Craig Becker to the NLRB, as well as the prospect of appointing the NLRB’s General Counsel in the Fall.  We blogged about it here.

All About Andy…

When Hypocrisy Strikes…
  • Shock! Not All Unions Like Card-Check…? After hundreds of millions spent and years of hard work to pass the job-destroying and hallucinogenically-named Employee Free Choice Act, it’s hard to believe (well, maybe not) that when a union’s own employees want to unionize, the union-employer wouldn’t just voluntarily succumb agree to recognize the union based on card-check.  Such is the case here.
  • Shhh!… Don’t tell the UFCW you saw this, ’cause this is not your normal UFCW strike and they’d rather not have it talked about.
  • Oh Hilda! You’ve got picketers at your door!  Will you or won’t you cross?
  • An Injury to One?… AFSCME throws Solidarity Under the Bus…  (again…)

Strike That!…

And then there’s this…



If you can’t do the time…

And this…
And, that, dear readers, wraps up this week’s edition of LaborUnionReport.com’s LaborShorts.
