Legislative Alert !!!! Take Action Against Accelerated Union Elections


The House and Senate Propose Resolutions Combating the NLRB’s Sped Up Union Election Rule

In December 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a new rule that will dramatically alter longstanding procedures for elections to determine whether or not employees want union representation. Under the new rule, employers will only have 14 to 24 days between the petition and the election to educate their employees on information concerning union representation. This is a drastic change from the 31 day standard employers normally were given.

Congress has introduced resolutions in both the House and Senate against this rule, S.J. Res 36 and H.J. Res 103. Senators Enzi (R -WY) and Isakson (R-GA), along with Representatives Kline (R-MN), Roe (R-TN) and Phil Gingrey (R-GA) introduced the resolutions in accordance with the Congressional Review Act (CRA), which allows Congress to disapprove of regulations issued by federal agencies. If Congress passes this joint resolution, the NLRB’s rule will become nullified. 

NJECPAC joins the Independent Electrical Contractors in their support of S.J. Res 36 and H.J. Res 103 and has already signed on to a letter with the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace stating our support. We encourage our members to contact their elected officials and urge them to support these resolutions. Please take a brief moment to show your support for these two resolutions and future legislation that would prohibit the NLRB from altering union election procedures. Take Action Here
