Business, labor groups gird for vote on controversial NLRB union election rule

By Kevin Bogardus, The Hill

Business groups and unions are bracing for congressional action on the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) union election rule.

Those in business and labor are expecting a vote in the Senate, perhaps as early as next week, on a joint resolution for congressional disapproval that would block the regulation. A Senate Republican leadership aide told The Hill that a vote on the measure was expected sometime over the next two weeks.

That will likely step up lobbying on the proposal. On Thursday, the AFL-CIO sent a letter to senators urging them to vote against the joint resolution.
