Industry Records Regulatory Win: Labor Officials Rescind "Persuader Rule"

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Last week, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued a final rule formally vacating the controversial “Persuader Rule." The rule, originally finalized in March 2016, has been on hold nationally since November 2017 by order of a federal judge. Since its inception, NRMCA has been actively opposing the rule, which aimed to limit employers’ ability to seek and retain legal counsel for purposes of consulting on employee union organizing drives. The rule also would have required employers and legal counsel to disclose certain financial and other unnecessary private company information, amongst other erroneous provisions. In numerous submittals to DOL, NRMCA has detailed how the rule represents an unwarranted intrusion into employers' and employees’ rights and that the revisions to current law are unwarranted and overly broad in scope.

The July 18 notice formally rescinds the March 2016 rule, marking a major victory for the ready mixed concrete industry. The rescission is effective as of August 17, 2018.
