Cuellar votes with GOP to pass bill to weaken National Labor Relations Board

Does Blue Dog = GOP ?
From The New York Times
By Steven Greenhouse

The bill, called “The Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act,” is expected to face an uphill battle in the Democratic-led Senate. In the House vote on Thursday, the partisan divide was clear: only 8 Democrats voted for the bill and only 7 Republicans voted against it.

Republicans have repeatedly criticized the complaint that the board’s acting general counsel filed against Boeing last April, which accused the company of building an assembly line in North Charleston, S.C., as a form of retaliation against unionized Boeing employees in Washington State who had engaged in five strikes since 1977, including a 58-day-walkout in 2008. The National Labor Relations Act prohibits companies from taking any actions, whether firing employees or relocating a factory, against workers for exercising federally protected rights that include forming a union or going on strike.

  1. This fucker is going out, along with his brother.

  2. I doubt that. Laredo will vote for him only because he's from Laredo. He's got too much of a base here to make a difference.

    This vote is expected from Henry. He is anti regulation, anti environment, anti corporate taxation, anti union, etc, etc...
