Dems To Ram Through Union Crony for NLRB

by SunnyRight on February 3, 2010

Senate Democrats intend to ram through the nomination of union crony Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board prior to the seating of Senator-elect Scott Brown (R-MA). Becker’s confirmation will lead to the implementation of a backdoor “card-check”.

Republicans have been able to hold up his nomination thus far, but it’s expected that Becker will be confirmed by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions tomorrow. Then it goes to the floor for a final vote, which would require 60 votes for confirmation. Democrats are trying to get that vote to the floor before Republicans achieve the votes to filibuster.

Why is it so important to liberals that Becker be confirmed? Phillip Klein of The American Spectator:

Currently, there are only two members on the five-member NRLB — one is a Republican and the other a Democrat. To tilt the balance of the board, Obama tapped two union lawyers (Craig Becker and Mark Pearce). He also appointed a Republican Senate staffer, Brian E. Hayes, in hopes it would dissuade Republican senators from blocking the other two.

Becker, a longtime labor activist, is the associate general counsel of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The left-wing magazine In These Times wrote that he “helped lay the intellectual foundation for the Employee Free Choice Act.” More relevantly, he wrote a law review article arguing that the major aims of EFCA could be achieved through rulings by the regulatory body to which Obama has appointed him.

“This is somebody who has announced ahead of time that he thinks he can do much of the left’s agenda through the regulatory process,” Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, said in an interview with TAS. “It’s one thing for him to say he intends to do something, but when you look at it, where are the guardrails? Who says he can’t? Who slaps him down?”

Norquist said that if Becker were confirmed, all that would need to happen would be for somebody to file a complaint arguing that the unionization process at a particular business was unfair, and the union-friendly board could decide in the person’s favor and set rules for unionization and collective bargaining along the lines of what is prescribed by EFCA.

This far-leftist SEIU crony gets confirmed and all that would be required for collective bargaining rules to be established along EFCO lines would be a single employee complaining to the board. It’s backdoor card-check. Only worse.

How far-left is this scheme? George McGovern, 1968 Democratic nominee and liberal poster boy, vocally opposes it. As does Warren Buffet, supporter of Barack Obama and other Democrats. It’s that bad.
