One of my New Year's resolutions is to be better about keeping up to date with my synopses of NLRB decisions. This resolution ought to be pretty easy for the next few weeks, because -- with a new Board including four new Members (out of five) just having been installed -- they presumably won't really get cranked up and start putting out many substantive opinions for a while yet. Today's news, however, brings the first decision ever of the "W Board" or the "Battista Board," whichever you prefer to call it: a little unanimous order approving a settlement that had temporarily suspended a union rep from practice before the Board, because he allegedly punched a guy. Why bother to make this the new Board's first order of business? Because the temporary suspension was due to end two days ago, so they had to get the opinion in before then. This labor law is heady stuff.
