House Introduces Bill

The Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations Act, H.R. 1120 was introduced to the House of Representatives on Wed., March 13, 2013 in response to the flux caused by the NLRB recess appointments and the D.C. Circuit's decision in Noel Canning ( previously covered here). Citing policy reasons, the bill seeks to ban the NLRB from taking action which requires quorom until the controversy is resolved via: (1) Senate confirmation of the appointees; (2) Supreme Court decision; or (3) the 113th Congress adjourns and terms of the recess appointees expire. While the bill seeks to stop the NLRB from taking action that requires quorum, it does not intend to stop NLRB regional offices from processing ULP charges.

A copy of H.R. 1120 can be found here (PDF).
