On April 12, the House passed H. R. 1120, the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor Management Relations Act, on a narrow 219 to 209 vote. The bill would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from taking any action that requires a quorum unless and until the Senate confirms new board members or the Supreme Court overturns the recent D.C. Circuit decision that found President Obama's purported appointees to the board to be unconstitutional. The bill would not stop workers from petitioning for union elections or restrict NLRB regional offices from accepting and processing unfair labor practice charges.
