Despite overwhelming public opposition, the NLRB plans to move ahead with its “ambush” union elections rule. Recently, they announced they will finalize the rule on November 30, which is this Wednesday.

Congress must STOP the NLRB from imposing “ambush elections”! Supposedly designed to “streamline” union election procedures and limit unnecessary litigation, the NLRB’s rule would in fact cause the timeline for a union election to shrink from an average of 38 days to as little as 10 days. This would effectively deny employers time to reach out to their employees when union organizers can work behind the scenes for months beforehand, and it would deny employees time to consider all the arguments in favor and in opposition to organizing into a union.

The NLRB, currently packed with former union attorneys, believes unions aren’t winning enough elections across the country, and are imposing these new rules to dramatically tilt the playing field in favor of their former union pals.

Rep. John Kline (R-MN) and other members of the House of Representatives are fighting back. In October the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, H.R. 3094, was introduced to put a stop to these “ambush” elections, and now the bill will likely receive a vote in the House as soon as THIS WEEK.
