Skip to comments.Outgoing Democratic NLRB chairwoman: Conservatives attacking Board with ‘baseball bat’

Outgoing National Labor Relations Board chairwoman Wilma Liebman thinks critics of the NLRBs recent policies have blown their complaints grossly out of proportion to what has happened and what has been done.
We knew we were going to have a boxing match, but we didnt expect our opponents to come in with a baseball bat, Liebman, a Democrat, told The New York Times.
The NLRB has come under fire during President Obamas administration for favoring unions. The Board has traditionally swung with political tides, but critics say this time around its different. The NLRB has plowed forward with unprecedented cases, like the one against The Boeing Company for opening a new plant in South Carolina, and pushed new pro-union regulations like the quickie elections.

That truly is a crying shame. We need to come in with chainsaws instead.
>The perception of this agency as doing radical things is mystifying to me, Liebman continued. <<
Just shows you how clueless and arrogant this twit is..
If it sounds too good to be true, that’s because it probably is too good to be true.
Wilma Liebman. Whining loser of the year. Go back to your Commie buddies.
That’s my opinion. We should not be bringing a baseball bat to a chainsaw fight.
It’s all union.
They understand baseball bats.
A standard tactic for such radicals. They create policies that are totally beyond their authority, and are highly unconstitutional and intrusive, harming lots of people and businesses. And then, when they are called out on it, whine that it is their opponents who are radical and extreme for opposing them.
Think about it, wacko leftists calling conservatives “extremists” for opposing radical change. Turning the definition of the word on its head.
they are trying to force card check and we all saw what they are doing to the Boeing factory
Take no chances - nuc ‘em from space.
I don’t know about a baseball bat, but somebody definitely hit her with an ugly stick.
Another good find. I am stealing this. Put it up on the website, and just on Twitter. :)
Didn’t YOUR president tell you to bring a gun?
We knew we were going to have a boxing match, but we didnt expect our opponents to come in with a baseball bat,
Well boo frickety hoo!
Why not? It’s the Chicago way...
Looks more like an “Ugly Stick” than a baseball bat.
It’s the only way to be sure...
Twenty-five years ago, this Board served as a mediating force between battling union locals, internationals or district committees and employers and employer associations. It found a middle line and was feared and respected by both sides.
Since the Clinton era, that position of legitimate mediation has been totally lost by “activism” and taking sides to promote a unionism agenda.
This will help kill unions as employers will be convinced that they have no impartial appeal boards or assistance available and therefore will do all that they can to not become signatory firms.
Like the risk of exposure to “unfunded pension or healthcare fund liability” this will drive another nail in the coffin of “organized” labor.
