Abstract:     
The National Labor Relations Act is supposed to consist of five members. The terms of three members have expired and those members have not been replaced. The two remaining members have continued to issue decisions, notwithstanding statutory language requiring that the Board have, “at all times,” a quorum of three.

One federal circuit has held that the hundreds of decisions since issued by the two-member Board are invalid. Five circuits have ruled that the decisions are valid. The Supreme Court has granted certiorari. We believe that the Court should – and will – hold that the two-member Board decisions are contrary to the express language of the statute.
