NLRB's Multi-Pronged Overreach Handcuffs Job Growth, According to Recent Manufacturers' Survey

Washington, D.C., - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons released a statement urging the House of Representatives to pass the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act (H.R. 2587):

"Manufacturers call on members of Congress to vote for jobs and help rein in the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) agenda by supporting the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act. The NLRB's actions are causing uncertainty among manufacturers who want to invest in America and hire workers in the U.S.

While this legislation would prohibit the NLRB from ordering job creators to close, relocate, or transfer facilities, manufacturers are also concerned about a number of other aggressive maneuvers by the NLRB. The Specialty Healthcare case would allow union organizers to set up costly, time-consuming micro-unions, and the 'quick snap elections' rule would effectively deny employees the ability to make fully informed decisions about whether to join a union. Along with the Boeing case, these power grabs will have a devastating effect on many industries at a time of high unemployment and feeble economic recovery.

In a recent NAM poll of 8,700 manufacturers, 69 percent of the 1,000-plus respondents said that the NLRB's actions will negatively affect their ability to create jobs. Manufacturers and their employees can't afford more job-killing proposals from the NLRB. Congress must tie the hands of the Administration's NLRB to prevent it from continuing to cause harm to America's job creators."
