House Republicans are preparing to advance legislation that would give employers more time to react to union petitions.

The bill, which will come up next week, is a response to rules that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued over the summer that call for quick union elections once a petition is filed.

“We can’t wait for Democrats in Washington to wake up to the fact that the NLRB’s actions are wreaking havoc on American workplaces,” House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-Minn.) said Thursday.
