Labor Board Is Unfair, Its Own Lawyers Charge
In a charge filed with the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA), the National Labor Relations Board Professional Association (NLRBPA) has complained that the NLRB is engaging in bad faith bargaining---an unfair labor practice of the type that the Board is supposed to prevent in the private sector. This is the second unfair labor practice charge filed in slightly over a year with the federal sector labor body by the union representing 160 non-managerial lawyers at the NLRB. The NLRBPA alleges that the NLRB has employed surface and regressive bargaining tactics in ongoing negotiations over non-wage issues, and in addition to filing the charges plans to hold a rally outside NLRB headquarters tomorrow.
