What is the Future of the NLRB?

April 23, 2009 - NYC

After eight years of decisions by the Bush Board, what approach will the Obama administration take in forging a national labor policy?

Will it be a pro-labor Board?

What does it mean for labor policy to be made by political appointees?

What does effectuating the Act really mean?

Is the Board capable of protecting worker rights and enforcing the Act?

Are there other and better alternatives?

Join us for a discussion with Professor James Gross on the Board’s history and its relevance to the Board’s next four years, followed by reactions from our expert commentators, Dan Ratner and Mike Curley.
