A recent federal appeals court ruling has effectively blocked a rule that would have required employers to display posters informing workers of their right to form a union. The rule was due to go into effect April 30.
The groups seeking the injunction claimed the union poster rule would impact more than 6 million employers not otherwise subject to National Labor Relations Board regulation.
“For the last several months, ABC has vigorously fought NLRB’s politically motivated policies that threaten to paralyze the construction industry in order to benefit the special interests of politically powerful unions,” said Geoff Burr, Vice President of Federal Affairs at Associated Builders and Contractors.
“The NLRB’s notice posting rule is a perfect example of how the pro-union board has abandoned its role as a neutral enforcer and arbiter of labor law.”
