Today, Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement after reports of National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) misconduct surfaced, specifically NLRB personnel interfering in ongoing union elections and collaborating with union organizers:
“When a statutorily neutral agency actively informs organizers which employees should be targeted and coerced, something has gone terribly wrong.
“This country has never seen the NLRB act so openly—or brazenly—to drive American workers into unions. Collusion among seasoned NLRB officials and the Workers United agents driving the Starbucks union campaign is disturbing. I urge the majority to hold a hearing on these troubling reports.”
