Amendments to NLRB Rule Would Modernize Process, Make It More Transparent
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International Brotherhood of Teamsters issued its support today for a rule suggested by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) which would ease and hasten union-organizing elections at private-sector companies, a move unions have sought for many years.
The rule, if approved, would eliminate existing hurdles that can delay union-organizing votes with meritless and unnecessary litigation. The changes would streamline pre- and post-election procedures to help facilitate agreement and consolidate all election-related appeals into a post-election appeals process. Taken together, they would help stop companies from abusing the legal process to stall election votes, as many do now.
"Workers for too long have been forced to endure unnecessary delays when they have tried to start a union," Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa said. "We urge the NLRB to move forward with these changes so hard-working Americans can organize and better provide for their families."
