Through the veil of the Fight for $15 movement that it has bankrolled, SEIU demanded that two of the republican members of the National Labor Relations Board recuse themselves this week from decisions involving a pending settlement of a major McDonald’s case. The settlement was rejected by an NLRB administrative law judge last month and is now pending before the full Agency Board. SEIU mouthpieces in Fight for $15 claimed that NLRB Chairman John Ring and member William Emanuel should step aside from the case due to the fact that they previously worked with management side law firms advising businesses on issues related to the Fight for $15. McDonald’s is involved in the case along with its franchisees because of the dramatic expansion of the joint-employer definition rendered in the Browning-Ferris decision by the union-favoring NLRB majority under President Obama.
