Overcoming Criticism, the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations Act Moves Forward

The Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations Act progressed towards a vote on the House floor. Overcoming criticism by Democrats, the Bill won a 7-3 vote in the House Rules Committee. As previously discussed by us here, the Bill, amongst other things, would seek to ban the NLRB from taking action which requires quorom until the Noel Canning controversy is resolved via: (1) Senate confirmation of the appointees; (2) Supreme Court decision; or (3) the 113th Congress adjourns and terms of the recess appointees expire.

This controversial Bill seems to be coming to a head just as President Obama is seeking to fill the Board with his new presumed nominees which we covered earlier this week. It is believed that a vote on the Bill on the House floor could happen yet this week.
