Republican lawmakers have criticized the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for going against an executive order from President Barack Obama requiring government agencies to weigh public input before making important policy decisions, reports DailyCaller.com.

The president’s order, signed on Monday, encourages agencies to give the public a “meaningful opportunity” to weigh in on decisions that affect them.

The independent NLRB’s new decision to allow “quickie” elections of union officials will grease the gears for increased labor organization and prevent workers from having a say in whether or not to unionize, says the Caller.

“I am disappointed that the NLRB would continue to rush their regulations into place to allow unions to subject employers to ambush elections, even after the executive order issued today by the president calling for more public participation,” said Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.

“These actions reject the transparency that the American public expects from government,” he continued. ”The NLRB’s recent actions paint a picture of a rogue agency, rushing to regulate behind closed doors.”
