Labor Board Member Under Fire Over Corruption Lawsuit

The Workplace Fairness Institute is leading the call for recess appointee Robert Griffin to resign from the National Labor Relations Board, because of his alleged involvement with several corrupt unions. 

Dave Boyer, Washington Times has the story:

“The time has come for Richard Griffin to put aside his commitment to rewarding his fellow Big Labor bosses to the detriment of American employees and employers, and resign his post as a member of the National Labor Relations Board,” said Fred Wszolek, spokesman for the Workforce Fairness Institute, a group affiliated with Republican operatives. “The recent complaint that names him as a defendant and details his role in an embezzlement scheme clearly makes him unsuited to serve as an unbiased arbiter deciding matters that significantly impact American workers and small businesses.”

During the presidential campaign in 2012, Republican candidate Mitt Romney accused Mr. Obama of appointing organized labor movement “stooges” to the NLRB to secure pro-union rulings from the board.
