Corporate giants and anti-worker front groups are flooding the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) with letters to stop the enactment of several new rules that would level the playing field for workers in union representation elections.
The proposed rules would make union representation elections fairer by simplifying procedures, deferring litigation and setting shorter deadlines for hearings and filings. Currently when workers petition the NLRB for an election, it can take months and even years before they can cast a vote. Companies often use this time to threaten, scare and discourage workers from voting. Many hire “union busting” consulting firms who assist the company in deterring employees.
The NLRB is accepting public comments before making a decision on whether the rules should become final. It’s up to working families to make sure our voices are heard in this debate.
