NAM and NFIB Launch Educational Effort on Board's Aggressive Agenda Against Growth and Competitiveness

Washington, D.C. - In response to the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) onslaught of attacks on expansion, competition and jobs, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) will launch a series of ads today calling on members of Congress to support the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act. The multi-state ad campaign will highlight one of many recent actions from the NLRB that, if left unchecked, could result in closing a new state-of-the-art plant and the loss of thousands of jobs at a time when the national unemployment rate is above 9 percent.

The radio spots will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia, calling on Congress to pass legislation to rein in the NLRB and prevent the Board from dictating where businesses can and cannot create jobs in our country. This initiative brings together small business owners and manufacturers of all sizes to educate policymakers and the public on the stark economic consequences of the NLRB's actions. Job creators are supporting this effort and speaking out against the anti-growth agenda pursued by an unelected federal board because they face uncertainty when making decisions about where to expand and whom to hire.

"It's absurd that an unelected government agency is taking such aggressive actions to stifle job creation and economic growth," said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. "Manufacturers from across the country tell me repeatedly how the NLRB's actions overwhelmingly will hurt their ability to create jobs. We're also very concerned about the NLRB's decisions and proposed regulations upsetting the positive and productive relationships between employers and employees."

"It is clear that the NLRB has strayed from its role as an impartial arbiter to instead become just an extension of labor unions," said NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner. "This new atmosphere has created a chilling effect on businesses of all sizes. The NLRB has crossed beyond the scope of its legal authority in its zeal to punish businesses, and it needs to be reined in before more damage is done."
