Kline Urges President to Side with Workers and Employers, Stop Misguided NLRB Regulation

U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-MN) issued the following statement today after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia prevented the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from enforcing its poster regulation:

"At a time when employers are struggling to grow their businesses and create jobs, the last thing they need is an unlawful mandate that fosters unnecessary confusion and conflict in the workplace. The NLRB does not have the authority to force employers to post a biased notice of employee ‘rights.' Two federal judges have now issued decisions that will help rein in the NLRB’s activist agenda and roll back this misguided regulatory scheme. As this legal battle moves forward, President Obama should take action to help end the uncertainty facing millions of employers by urging his labor board to withdraw this flawed regulation.”
