As you’ve undoubtedly heard by now, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)
recently issued a proposal that would amend the procedures it follows both before and after conducting
a secret ballot election.
The new rules would shorten the time period between a union’s election
request and the actual voting, force you to turn over employee lists to the
union much faster, and delay any lawsuits or appeals you might file to slow
Unsurprisingly, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has criticized the move: “This
is another, not-so-cleverly-disguised effort to restrict the ability of employers
to express their views during an election campaign, to inform employees of the
pros and cons of unionization,” said Randel K. Johnson, the Chamber’s senior
vice president for labor matters.

to do to protect your workplace. We hope you’ll consider joining us; click here for all the
