- The NLRB will hold public meetings on its new election rules proposals. Requests to speak are due March 10 and the meetings are scheduled for April 10 & 11. The transcripts from the previous set of meetings, while containing a lot of the usual suspects, actually had some useful testimony, so it's not just a pro forma procedural hurdle.
- Here we go again. Apropos to the above entry, after the NLRB proposed again its original set of election rules, Republicans in Congress attack. This time a House hearing. The main objection appears to be faster elections (what they call "ambush elections"), although the claim that they could be held in as little as 10 days doesn't look accurate to me.
- I'm late on this one, but the NLRB is relocating. HQ is moving from the 14th & L location that I new so well to a building on the Capitol riverfront. At least they'll be able to catch more Nationals games.
- After the Scott Walker e-mail release, it became known that a state doctor was fired for having modeled thongs in the past. Jason Walta asks whether she might have a claim under the Wisconsin statute that protects the "use or nonuse of lawful products off the employer's
premises during nonworking hours." See the lengths we'll go to try to tease Paul, our emeritus Wisconsinite, back onto the blog?
