Washington, D.C. – The National Labor Relations Board has released a protocol for dealing with over 600 cases decided by a two-member Board – recently disallowed by the U.S. Supreme Court in New Process Steel v. NLRB. Kimberly Freeman Brown, Executive Director of American Rights at Work, released the following statement:

"America's workers need a fair, but expeditious, resolution of the cases put into limbo by the U.S. Supreme Court. Anti-worker interests need to let the NLRB do its job of fully enforcing the nation's labor laws.

Even as many corporations continue to do all they can to resist our nation's labor laws, today's fully functional NLRB can begin to reset the balance by vigorously protecting employees' rights."
