We’ve been following the NLRB’s attempts to change decades-old election rules to make it easier for unions to organize. As we reported, on May 14, 2012, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia struck down the election rules because the Board lacked a quorum under the Supreme Court’s decision in New Process Steel.
Following the decision, the Board filed a motion for reconsideration, which was denied by the court on July 27, 2012.
On August 7, 2012, the NLRB filed a notice of appeal, seeking review of the District Court’s decision from the D.C. Circuit. We will continue to follow the NRLB’s attempts to force through these rule changes.
