WASHINGTON (AP) -- The chairman of the National Labor Relations Board says he won't let the controversy over President Barack Obama's recess appointments stop the agency from pressing ahead with changes that could help unions win new members.
Mark Pearce tells The Associated Press he will urge the board to approve new rules that would make it easier for unions to establish and win representation elections in workplaces.

The Kenyan’s “recess” appointment is worth $20-$50 million in union campaign contributions.
“...changes that could help unions win new members....”
Shouldn’t that be “changes that force unwilling good workers to give their hard earned money to democrat sleezebags and felon union bosses...”?
For your list.
Shouldn’t that be: ...changes that will cause more buinesses to move their manufacturng overseas?
I have no problem with people voluntarily joining unions for whatever reason....However, the union should send them a monthly invoice to be paid for their representation. Their employer should have nothing to do with union dues. Any private organization that collects dues should do so on their own.
Thanks Army Air Corps
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I do. Labor unions are a relic of the Marxist fervor that spread through the U.S. in the early part of the 20th century. They are a violation of citizens' property rights and have no place in a free society.
Obama's NLRB will force employers to give out your phone number and email to "union leaders?" Apparently the Left believes in "privacy" only in cases that conform to their goals.
