A group that fights the abusive influence of big labor on workers and businesses has taken to theWhite House's "We the People" petition website to urge him to rescind his recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, which took place when the Senate was not actually in recess.

"President Obama’s recent appointments to the National Labor Relations Board are unfair and unconstitutional," the petition, which comes from the Workforce Fairness Institute, reads. "He must rescind them immediately."

Though WFI does not expect Obama to change his mind, they hope to collect at least 25,000 signatures to “raise some noise and raise the stakes on his turf.”
