Our Take: New NLRB video goes too far in advocating for unionization

Perhaps it’s all in the viewer’s interpretation, but after watching the new video posted on the National Labor Relations Board website, it seems the NLRB is doing everything it can to push viewers toward unionization, as opposed to being just ‘fair and balanced.’

While the video (which, unfortunately, can’t be embedded here) does maintain some semblance of neutrality, the use of the ’employees’ going to the NLRB to learn how to get a union takes away from the NLRB’s overall sense of neutrality.

Had the NLRB used “employees” inquiring about unions or the election process in general, instead of seeking to get a union, the video might have more unbiased credibility.  It would have been easy to write the script that way and less objectionable.

However, given the amount of pro-union press releases issued by the Board lately, we suppose neutrality and credibility is more than can be expected.
