Labor Board Meets Rising Resistance

Wall Street Journal (04/25/12) Melanie Trottman

The U.S. Senate has rejected a measure advanced by Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) to overturn a new National Labor Relations Board regulation that would hasten union-organizing elections by preventing companies from completing legal challenges until after the voting. The regulatory changes to elections go into effect April 30 but could be reversed by courts.

In recent weeks the NLRB has encountered resistance to its actions, including a requirement that companies hang a poster informing employees of their right to join a union; a federal appeals court has brought a halt to the requirement at least until the court resolves questions about the merits of the rule. The challenges to the board’s authority could stall or prevent new board regulations and rulings.
