Invalid Labor Board negates Supreme Court's restrictions on union bosses' power to force workers to pay for union politics
Washington, D.C. (November 25, 2013) – A former Warwick, Rhode Island nurse has filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in the high-profile legal battle over President Barack Obama's recent purported recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Jeanette Geary filed the amicus brief today with free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys.
Foundation staff attorneys argue in the brief that the recess appointments are unconstitutional because the U.S. Senate was still in session per the body's rules. Therefore the President could not make the appointments to the NLRB without Senate confirmation.
