National Labor Relations Board decisions were illegal,
Supreme Court rules
Hundreds of recent federal rulings in disputes between
unions and employers could be reopened after the Supreme
Court said on Thursday that it was illegal for the
National Labor Relations Board to decide the cases with
only two sitting members.
The case before the court turns on an attempt by the
NLRB to operate with only two of its five seats filled
because of gridlock over presidential nominees, and it
highlights the way political divisions in Congress
interfere with basic government functions.
