Employers Strike Back, Sue NLRB Over Implementation of the Ambush Election Rule

Yesterday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Manufacturers, Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, National Retail Federation, and Society for Human Resource Management filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia alleging that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) exceeds its authority under the Administrative Procedures Act and violates the rights of employers under the First and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution by implementing its new representation election procedures (a.k.a. Ambush or Quickie Election Rule).

This is the first legal challenge to the Board’s authority to implement this controversial rule change. It is impossible to say what the court will decide, but from a shamelessly biased point of view, one would feel that the complaint is well reasoned and sound and that the court would prohibit the NLRB from implementing this Draconian change to a process that has been in place for nearly 80 years.


Stay tuned …
