A new National Labor Relations Board wasted little time in revisiting some of the more onerous labor decisions from the Obama era. The actions were expected, but the swiftness was a bit of a surprise.
To get caught up on what the board is doing, the law firm Jackson Lewis has put together a review of the top five labor decisions from December.
The decisions tackled decisions on join employers, union elections, what needs to be part of collective bargaining, and unfair labor practice settlements.
“On December 13, the Board published a Request for Information seeking public comments on the ‘quickie election’ representation rules,” the firm’s attorneys write. “The RFI seeks input on whether the Board should maintain, amend, or rescind the 2014 rules, which, among other things, reduced the time between the date of the filing of a representation petition and the NLRB-conducted election.”
