Kline Seeks Investigation of Possible Prohibited Communications at NLRB

Dear Inspector General Berry:

I respectfully ask you to commence an investigation to determine whether Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon or his staff made any prohibited ex parte communications regarding the Boeing case, 19-CA-32431.  Any such allegation must be investigated to ensure parties’ rights are protected.

As you know, 29 CFR 102.126 prohibits an interested person outside this agency from “mak[ing] or knowingly caus[ing] to be made any prohibited ex parte communications to Board agents…relevant to the merits of the proceeding.”  In this context, “person outside this agency” includes the general counsel or his representatives when he is prosecuting an unfair labor practice proceeding before the Board.
