NLRB Member Terence Flynn is the subject of a second investigation by the Inspector General concerning alleged leaks by Flynn of internal Board information to former Board member Peter Schaumber. Like the first report, issued March 19, 2012, the second report, issued late last week concludes that “the issues identified in this report…evidence a serious threat to the Board's decisional due process. We recommend the Board review these facts to determine appropriate action.” Copies of both reports are available here and here.
Since the second OIG report was released, Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa and California House Democrat George Miller have called for Flynn to resign from the Board. To no one's surprise, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka also joined in calling for Flynn's resignation.
Board Chairman Mark Pearce has said that he takes the reports very seriously but has given no indication if he plans to initiate any action against Flynn.
