NLRB ‘Ignoring The Costs’

 

U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: “… the National Labor Relations Board’s final ‘ambush election rule’ imposes unprecedented and sweeping changes to the procedures for conducting workplace elections… blatantly partisan… purpose of this rule is to ensure that employers have no time to talk to their workers about unionizing, and that the only information workers will get will come from the union.” (“Chamber Lawsuit Challenges NLRB’s Ambush Election Rule,” National Chamber Litigation Center, Accessed 4/23/12)

ke Enzi, 2/27/12)

ASSOCIATED BUILDERS AND CONTRACTORS: “These actions will have negative implications for workers, consumers, businesses and the economy…” (Associated Builders And Contractors, Letter To House Of Representatives, 11/28/11)
