Act Now to Stop NLRB Attack on Jobs, Privacy & Employee Choice

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Last Congress your efforts were successful in defeating "card check." Now, the Obama Administration is trying to enact "card check" through regulation. Federal regulators appointed by the Obama Administration to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and Department of Labor (DOL) have proposed three new initiatives that threaten your ability to seek and retain legal counsel and discuss union organizing drives with your employees. The NLRB has proposed a regulation that would shorten union representation elections from 38 days to 10 days. These "ambush elections" would leave you almost no time to speak with your employees about the disadvantages of unionization. The NLRB is also allowing unions to gerrymander elections by cherry picking small groups of employees that support the union and letting them form "micro-unions," which are easier to organize but will tear businesses apart.  At the same time, DOL has proposed a regulation that will make it harder for you to get information about how to lawfully communicate with your employees about unions. This will make a mockery of real elections and lead to "card check" by regulation.  

NRMCA, working with the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, is pleased to provide you with an easy way to contact the NLRB and your members of Congress. Tell them to stop "card check" by regulation and stop "micro-unions." Tell your senators and representative in Congress to oppose DOL's persuader rule, the ambush rule and the NLRB's micro-union standard, and ask them to support legislation that would stop this attack on American business. There are separate action alerts for each rule on and an additional outside link in Persuader to voice your opinion and tell the NLRB to stop pushing its ambush election rule. Make sure to click on the link for Senate letters on the ambush election and micro-union alerts. Thank you for lending your voice to these important issues.
