Latest Taxpayer's Tab: Defunding the NLRB
April 27, 2014
Student athletes on Northwestern University's football team recently voted on whether or not to unionize, an unprecedented move that could have far-reaching effects in the world of college athletics and how major schools' programs are financed. The decision that set the legal process in motion was made in February, after a Chicago branch of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled in the players' favor and affirmed that the student athletescould be considered university employees.
In this week's edition of The Taxpayer's Tab, NTUF examined the role of the NLRB and a bill that proposes to strip away its federal funding. That bill -- H.R. 4379, introduced by Congressman Matt Salmon (R-AZ) -- would save $264 million, the total amount that the Office of Management and Budget says the NLRB will spend this year.
