Union NO! Appeals Court Strikes Down NLRB Pro-Union Rule

Posted:

Using its National Labor Relations Board as the tool, the Obama administration issued a rule that would force businesses to post signs that reminded workers of their right to unionize.  Today a federal appeals court said that violates employer's free speech rights, and struck down the rule.

 President Obama recently appointed several union-friendly members to the NLRB, but the US Court Of Appeals for the District Of Columbia has now struck down several of the board's rules.  It also ruled that some of the President's board appointments were unconstitutional.  The Obama administration has appealed that ruling to the US Supreme Court.

 Unions had lobbied the NLRB for the rule because union membership is dropping fast in most states (California remains one of the few strong union states remaining).  

 The NLRB rule would have forced millions of businesses to post an 11 by 17-inch notice that stated workers had the right to form a union and to bargain collectively.  The posters also were to state that employees did not have to join a union.
