U.S. Chamber Says It Sues to Block NLRB Union Notice Rule

in Federal Legislation

By Stephanie Armour/Bloomberg

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce said it sued the National Labor Relations Board to block a rule that will require businesses to post notices about employees’ rights to unionize.

The Chamber, the biggest U.S. group representing business, and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce said the rule proposed in August by the labor board violates federal laws, according to a statement issued today about the lawsuit.

“This is nothing more than labor regulation run amok,” Robin Conrad, executive vice president of the National Chamber Litigation Center, the Chamber’s public-policy law firm, said in the statement. “The board’s new rule violates the First Amendment by forcing employers to use their own resources to post the NLRB’s pro-union message on the company’s own property.”

I find it very interesting the radio talk shows have not picked up on this ruling yet. The small business community is simply not aware of the ruling. It has appeared to slip in under the radar. This type of ruling could put industries out of business.
