NLRB Moves to Reinstate “Quickie Election” Rules

In late January, 2014, the NLRB withdrew its appeal from the court order that had successfully blocked its 2011 attempt to change the rules by which union elections are held.  While many thought this was the end of the matter, on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, the NLRB announced that it will reintroduce what is essentially the same set of rules, the primary effect of which would result in “quickie elections.”  This is an issue which generates strong feelings and reactions from both employers and union leaders, and employers should be alert to how this issue unfolds in the coming months, and perhaps years, if, as anticipated, the new proposals are once again challenged in court.  Click here to read the NLRB’s announcement.
