NLRB Avoids Drastic Budget Cut

The U.S. House and Senate passed a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill on Thursday, sparing the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from drastic budget reductions recently proposed by the Trump administration. The NLRB was allocated a budget of $278 million, matching the level of funding it received in 2017.

Prior to the bill’s passage, the NLRB had submitted a budget justification asking for an annualized funding level of $258 million for the remainder of fiscal year 2018 – the Trump administration has proposed even further cuts to that amount for next year. This reduced funding proposal from the Trump administration caused NLRB general counsel Peter Robb to announce a series of potential initiatives the NLRB would consider, including a reduction in the number of NLRB employees  and organization changes.
