The House Education and the Workforce committee is holding a hearing on February 11, 2011, to review the actions of the National Labor Relations Board.  We expect they will talk about recent NLRB decisions and rulemaking efforts and the general direction of the Board. 

In 2010, the Board’s budget was $287 million, up $20 million from the prior year.  Some cuts might be in the offing.   In addition, there may be an effort made to defund certain activities contemplated by the Board. We will provide you with more information after the hearing concludes.
