The U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions last week held a hearing to examine the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) apparent effort to upend 30 years of settled policy in order to expand the definition of a “joint employer.”  This latest initiative represents yet another attempt by the Board to accede to union demands to facilitate organizing campaigns, particularly in the fast food industry.

When it comes to violence in the workplace, most employers take threats seriously, and employees can face severe disciplinary consequences for making hostile threats.  But, in the bizzaro world of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the current majority seems willing to ignore threats made when the results of a unionization election could be at stake, as least if the election has gone the union’s way.
