Official: Obama to repeal 4 Bush executive orders

  WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama plans to overturn four Bush-era executive orders that organized labor opposed.

 A labor official tells The Associated Press that Obama will reverse one order that allowed unionized companies to post signs informing workers that they were allowed to decertify the union.

Critics said the order was unfair because nonunion businesses were not required to post signs letting workers know they were legally allowed to vote for a union. The official says the other three orders address similar administrative rules for labor groups.

 The official disclosed the plans on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to pre-empt the White House's plans.
