Apr. 24, 2013: An eight-story building housing garment factories in Dhaka, Bangladesh collapses, killing 1,129 workers and injuring 2,515.

More Companies Challenge NLRB's Right to Rule On Their Cases
Posted On: Mar 29, 2013

Mar. 29, 2013 | NLRB | Two more companies have dragged the National Labor Relations Board into federal appellate court, questioning the agency's right to rule in their labor-management disputes because the NLRB allegedly lacks a quorum. Their filings, in courts in Chicago and New Orleans, force the NLRB to scramble to defend its powers in judging labor law cases, arguing that it had the required three members to do so since January 2012….[The companies] are defending themselves not just on the specifics but — more importantly — using a January ruling [Noel Canning v. NLRB] by a 3-judge federal appeals panel in D.C. That court rules the NLRB lacked a quorum to decide virtually every case in 2012…The board has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take the Noel Canning case and resolve the mess. But even if the high court does so, the justices will not hear it before October at the earliest. Read the full story at Peoples World.org.
