ON-Lion Letter
In July, U.S. Senators led by John McCain and Majority Leader Harry Reid made a deal to defuse the "nuclear option" that would have eliminated filibusters of executive nominations.  Under the deal, McCain and other Republicans agreed to confirm two National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) replacements offered by The White House.

"Union bosses know their coercive agenda is overwhelmingly unpopular with the American people.  This is why they've turned to unelected administrative agencies like the NLRB to push through much of what they cannot get through Congress," according to Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, which is supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.

"And after Senator John McCain apparently struck a backroom deal today with Senate Democrats to sell out independent-minded workers, the Obama White House wasted no time meeting with union bosses to determine who they want on the agency to enact their radical agenda," Mix continued.

"Even though the American people who are outraged by this rogue NLRB were not included in these discussions," he said, "Obama's NLRB appointments will pave the way for at least three more years of the very forced-unionism giveaways union bosses failed to obtain through the legislative process.

"Obama reportedly will nominate career union lawyers Nancy Schiffer and Kent Hirozawa to the NLRB," Mix concluded.  "Both NLRB nominees, who are practically guaranteed to be confirmed, are staunch pro-forced unionism advocates."
