Controversial NLRB Representation Rules Reemerging: Union Organizing Promotion Redux—The Obama "Labor Board" Doing Everything It Can to Advance Union Representation Cases

Employment Law Notes
The National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB” or “Board”) is once again racing down the road of major regulation changes regarding union organizing/representation election cases. Continuing political efforts to help the Labor movement slow the downslide of union representation in America, the Obama Board in February 2014 reissued its controversial 2011 regulation changes. Those regulations had been overturned by federal court decisions in 2012-2013 related to administrative procedure errors by the Board.
