NLRB Avoids Drastic Budget Cut


The U.S. House and Senate passed a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill on Thursday, sparing the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from drastic budget reductions recently proposed by the Trump administration.

Prior to the bill’s passage, the NLRB had submitted a budget justification asking for an annualized funding level of $258 million for the remainder of fiscal year 2018 – the Trump administration has proposed even further cuts to that amount for next year. This reduced funding proposal from the Trump administration caused NLRB general counsel Peter Robb to announce a series of potential initiatives the NLRB would consider, including a reduction in the number of NLRB employees  and organization changes .
