Employers Rush to Court to Block Labor Board’s New Election Rule: Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (12/20/11)

The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Dec. 20 filed suit in federal court to block the National Labor Relations Board’s “ambush” election rule, which would change the process for union representation elections. The new rule effectively shortens election time frames, limiting employees’ opportunity to hear from employers and make an informed choice and diminishing employers’ due process. The complaint seeks to enjoin the NLRB from enforcing the final rule.

CDW chairman Geoffrey Burr said, “Instead of putting fairness first, the NLRB bowed to special interests by abandoning longstanding rules governing union-representation elections for this new rigged system where employees have less information and employers have fewer legal rights and a diminished due process.” He continued, “Big Labor’s paid union organizers seeking more dues-paying members spend months making their pitch. Employees deserve to hear from employers too—employees deserve the full story.” Burr concluded that the only way to block the rule was to take legal action.
