Will the NLRB Lose a Member?

A report by the Inspector General of the National Labor Relations Board concludes that a current member of the Board, Terence Flynn, shared confidential information about Board deliberations with outside parties in violation of NLRB ethics rules.  Flynn, a Republican, is one of President Obama’s recent recess appointees to the Board.  Among those to whom he is alleged to have leaked information is a former NLRB member who is now, among other things, a labor policy advisor to Mitt Romney.  In a statement, the AFL-CIO called on Flynn to resign.
