Give Us 5 NLRB Members

July 1, 2013

In several actions around the country Tuesday—including a rally outside the U.S. Chamber of Commerce headquarters in Washington, D.C.— workers and their allies will tell the U.S. Senate it’s time to confirm  President  Obama’s bipartisan package of five nominees to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Congress is due back to work July 8 and the nominees —three Democrats and two Republicans—must be confirmed before August, when the term of one of the current NLRB members ends and the board will be without a quorum.
