NLRB pursuing settlements, despite Noel Canning decision

Despite mounting court challenges, the National Labor Relations Board is continuing to function, particularly in the area of case settlements, two regional NLRB directors said on Wednesday.

"The impact of Noel Canning is not paralyzing. We are continuing to process cases," NLRB regional director Karen Fernbach said at a conference in New York hosted by Cornell University's Industrial Labor Relations School.

Fernbach was referring to the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in Noel Canning v. NLRB, in which the appeals court ruled that two of the board's current members were improperly installed by the U.S. president.
