NLRB “Ambush Election Rules“ Upheld

vote-unionA challenge to the NLRB’s “ambush election rules” has failed.  A federal court sitting in the District of Columbia ruled that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups challenging the new election rules – which, as discussed in our prior blog post,  speed up the union election process – failed to prove that the rules violate any laws. The court rejected the groups’ contentions that the rules constitute “sweeping changes to the election process” and impinge on employers’ constitutional rights.

With the new rules seemingly here to stay, employers need to be prepared and ready to go.
