ALG - NLRB utilizes more union representation than any other agency  

6

Oct. 7, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement calling attention to Office of Personnel Management data that shows the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) utilized more union representation than any other agency:

 

"Federal government labor union employees at the NLRB apparently need the most protection by taxpayer funded union stewards of any other Agency.  As the Office of Personnel Management revealed late last week, in 2012, the National Labor Relations Board's employees utilized more union representation than any other Agency and it wasn't even close.

 

"It is truly sad that the Board which purports to protect employee rights, has such little regard for their own staff that employees need to have four times as many hours spent on union representatives than the average federal agency.  A cynic might believe that perhaps these are old-fashioned featherbed jobs, where little work is actually required. 

 

"As a result, Americans for Limited Government intends to issue a formal complaint to the Office of the Inspector General to determine whether there is an abusive labor situation at the NLRB, or are these brother-in-law jobs where no work is required?

 

"One other question that anyone concerned with good government should ask is, "why is this report just being issued now, almost two years after the 2012 fiscal year ended?  OPM's failure to issue these reports that go to the heart of how this Administration is allocating its personnel spending is egregious in this age of computerized data tracking."
