Yet Another Seasonal "GOPhuque Yourself" From the NLRB to Organized Labor

From The Carpetbagger Report comes this unsurprising news:
* A step backwards for union workers’ right to organize: “The National Labor Relations Board has ruled that employers have the right to prohibit workers from using the company’s e-mail system to send out union-related messages, a decision that could hamper communications between labor unions and their membership. In a 3-to-2 ruling released on Friday, the board held that it was legal for employers to prohibit union-related e-mail so long as employers had a policy barring employees from sending e-mail for “non-job-related solicitations” for outside organizations. The ruling is a significant setback to the nation’s labor unions, which argued that e-mail systems have become a modern-day gathering place where employees should be able to communicate freely with co-workers to discuss work-related matters of mutual concern.”
Anyone expecting any different behavior from the NLRB under Mrs. C, or Obama--both of whom are bought-and-paid-for by Big Bidness--is delusional.
