Sen. Franken Blasts GOP Anti-Union Measure Reversing NLRB Rule

Republicans controlling the U.S. Senate are trying to reverse a new National Labor Relations Board rule that would shorten the time between a union’s request for representation and the vote on whether to certify a union.

The measure passed on a 53-45 party-line vote. But President Obama has said he will veto it if it reaches his desk.

Senator Al Franken (DFL-Minnesota) expressed his disapproval of striking down NLRB reforms which he said modernize and streamline the election process in which workers choose whether or not to form a union.
