Obama Labor Board Revives Speedy Vote Rule Employers Fought
Tampa Partner Steve Bernstein was quoted in Bloomberg Business Week on February 5, 2014.
The National Labor Relations Board, in a 3-2 decision, said it was reissuing rules to shorten the time for employee elections and requiring businesses to give union leaders lists of worker phone numbers and e-mails before a vote, according to the article.
Within hours, the Republican-led House Education and Workforce Committee announced a March 5 hearing on the measure.
“We were expecting this,” said Steve.“Myself and many members of the business community would describe it as overreach. You could argue they’re really gutting the substance of the process.”
