Hearing on overturning Obama's special favor to airline unions 

Last year, President Obama's National Mediation Board overturned 76 years of labor law by adopting a novel interpretation of the rules governing union elections for railroad and airline workers. Such elections had previously always required a majority of the work force to vote for unionization for any union to be given monopoly representation rights. The Obama NMB changed the rules to require only a majority of those voting, in order to help the flight attendants' and machinists' unions take over at Delta.

Among the issues being discussed in this morning's House Transportation hearing is a measure to overturn this Obama favor to the unions.  You can watch the hearing here.
