NLRB Accepts Rejection of its Union Poster Rule
Yesterday, the National Labor Relations Board announced it would not challenge two decisions by United States Courts of Appeals that struck down a Board rule requiring private sector employers to post a notice about employee rights to unionize. As previously reported, the NLRB issued the rule over two years ago, but decided to postpone it indefinitely due to legal challenges by business groups. Yesterday’s announcement signifies the Board’s acceptance that the rule is unenforceable, and accordingly, private sector employers have no legal obligation to post the notice.
