The NLRB has maintained that the board will continue its operations as usual while the legal situation is resolved.
“The board respectfully disagrees with [the circuit court] decision and believes that the president’s position in the matter will ultimately be upheld,” NLRB Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce said Jan. 25 in a written statement. “It should be noted that this order applies to only one specific case . . . and that similar questions have been raised in more than a dozen cases pending in other courts of appeals.”
