WASHINGTON, D.C.Joe Hansen, International President of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) and Chair of Change to Win, today released the following statement calling on National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Member Terence Flynn to resign.
For months, Republicans have accused the NLRB of being politicized. It turns out they were right. But its been members of their own party playing politics. The latest Inspector Generals report detailing more leaks by Member Flynn during his time as counsel to the Board is deeply disturbing. Most egregious is the report that he may have leaked information to a top Mitt Romney advisor in hopes of getting appointed to the Board himself. Member Flynn has compromised his ability to be a fair and neutral arbiter. He should resign immediately and Congress should finally conduct a full investigation.
