H.R. 2587-"Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act"

Ted
re: This Bill was proposed due to the Boeing Case. Funny how things never change, re: The Right to Work for less States are always stealing the high paying jobs from the Union States.
_________________________________________________________________________

To prohibit the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstance.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, JULY 19, 2011

Mr. SCOTT of South Carolina (for himself, Mr. KLINE, Mr. ROE of Tennessee, Mr. WILSON of South Carolina, and Mr. GOWDY) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Education and the Workforce

A BILL
To prohibit the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstance.

1 Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act’’.

SEC. 2. AUTHORITY OF THE NLRB.

Section 10(c) of the National Labor Relations Act (29 U.S.C. 160) is amended by inserting before the period at the end the following: ‘‘: Provided further, That the Board shall have no power to order an employer (or seek an order against an employer) to restore or reinstate any work, product, production line, or equipment, to rescind any relocation, transfer, subcontracting, outsourcing, or other change regarding the location, entity, or persons who shall be engaged in production or other business operations, or to require any employer to make an initial or additional investment at a particular plant, facility, or location.’’.

SEC. 3. RETROACTIVITY.

The Act shall apply to any complaint for which a final adjudication by the Board has not been made by the date of enactment.
________________________________________________________

"The Board shall have no power to order an employer (or seek an order against an employer) to restore or reinstate any work"....
_________________________________________________________

The above quoted excerpt would negate thousands of ALJ & Board decisions & orders and precedent cases heard and tried over the last 5-decades, which provide the discriminated worker/employee the right to backpay & make whole remedies and interest under New Horizons & Kentucky River, and which provide for reinstatement orders.

This portion alone would neuter the NLRA to the point of worker rights being the illusion they were prior to passage of the Wagner Act in 1935. There is a War on against the middles class and skilled workers, so take heed - call your Congressman & Senators...tell them to Vote No, or tell to build their own damn signs!
__________________________________________________________

The "Outsourcing" line @ 4-above is a continuation of the Employer right to continue shipping as many jobs over-seas as they can under NAFTA & CAFTA. These laws destroyed the Manufacturing & Industrial Base, and turned the USA into a Nation of Service Sector Jobs (usually part time) with low wages & no benefits.

This passed Committee by a 7-vote margin. The House will be tight & the Senate is where this bill needs to die.
