NLRB’s “quickie election” rule struck down

Judge says rule is invalid because of board’s voting procedure

A federal judge has struck down the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) controversial “quickie election” rule.

The rule—which went into effect just two weeks ago when a district court rejected the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s request to issue a temporary injunction until after a final ruling on the election changes—shortened the time frame for union representation elections. The NLRB claims the shortened election cycle would minimize unnecessary litigation, but businesses contended that it gave unions an unfair advantage.
