Preparing for the US National Labor Relations Board's Final Rules on "Quickie Elections" Effective April 14, 2015
The 700-page rule, described by many as the ,Quickie" Election rule, will take effect April 14, 2015. According to the National Labor Relations Board, the new rule will ,simplify representation-case procedures, codify best practices, and make them more transparent and uniform across regions.Š While the new rule is expected to be challenged in court, union organizing efforts are certain to get a boost. The practical impact of the rule is that it will: Shorten the period in which employers may educate employees as to the stakes of unionization; Make it difficult for employers to seek pre-election clarification of the eligible voting group and identification of statutory supervisors; Burden employers with immediate procedural mandates upon receipt of an NLRB petition; Require employers to provide to the union (through the NLRB) within two days of the filing of a petition a list of eligible voters, including telephone numbers and email addresses. The ultimate result is that employers will have less time to mount a campaign and additional challenges in doing so. In light of the rule, employers must give careful consideration to workforce education, legal and communications strategies. Philip B. Rosen, Shareholder, Jackson Lewis P.C.
