WASHINGTON, D.C. | March 4, 2011
Dear Chairman Liebman:
The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) protects employees’ “right[s] to self-organize, to form, join, or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection” and “right[s] to refrain from any or all of such activities”. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is responsible for “safeguard[ing] employees’ rights to organize and to determine whether to have unions as their bargaining representatives.” To protect employees’ rights under the NLRA, the NLRB must maintain a neutral position between unions, employees, and employers.
Although subsequently changed to be more neutral, the March 3, 2011 NLRB advertisement on Google was unquestionably biased.
