Forgetting the fact that the NLRB’s Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon is doing union bosses’ bidding by trying to shut down Boeing’s union-free plant in South Carolina after employees exercised their right to decertify the union, has promulgated rules to force employers to turn over their private property and employees’ private information to union organizers (as well as to publicly humiliate them), has defied a Congressional subpoena, as well as is currently suing Right-to-Work states…forgetting all of these things, it would still be amazing that the American Bar Association would name such an anti-business zealot as Lafe Solomon the Federal Labor and Employment Attorney of the Year.
Yet, the ABA did just that, according to a NLRB press release:
NLRB Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon today was named Federal Labor and Employment Attorney of the Year by the American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law.
The award, which recognizes a federal attorney’s “commitment to government service, demonstrated contribution to the legal profession and sustained excellence in the quality of their work product,” was presented this morning at the ABA Section’s annual conference in Seattle.
In informing Mr. Solomon of the award, Section Chair Richard T. Seymour and Chair-Elect Steward S. Manela said, “Your career as a dedicated civil servant represents an example and an ideal. You have developed a reputation for integrity and leadership…Your long and distinguished service to the labor-management community in the federal government deserves recognition.”
You really can’t make this stuff up.
