Rogue Obama NLRB Appointee Again Moves to Prevent Workers from Removing Unwanted Union from Workplace

General Counsel seeks to block workers' majority petition to end employer recognition of an unsupported union

Chicago, IL (October 23, 2014) – An Arlington Metals Corporation steelworker has moved to intervene to stop a federal agency from foisting unwanted union representation back on his workplace after he and his coworkers attempted to remove the union.
