NLRB to vote on “Quickie Election” rule

Board will vote Nov. 30 on proposed election amendments

As the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) prepares to lose one of its three members at the end of the year, it appears to be scrambling to vote on a set of proposed amendments to union election procedures.

The board announced last week that it will vote on the so-called “Quickie Election” rule Nov. 30, just about a month before board member Craig Becker’s term expires on Dec. 31. The board’s proposed rule, which it published in June, would shorten union representation elections to about 30 days as opposed to the current 56 days. Experts say the shorter time frame would make it more likely that unions win elections, which is disconcerting to employers.
