NLRB expected to adopt Ambush Election Rules

NAE has been reminding employers that the National Labor Relations Board is interested in adopting regulations to accelerate the processing of union representation petitions and reduce the time until the elections.  The so-called Ambush Election Rules would clearly favor unions as it would reduce the time employers would have to campaign before the NLRB election.  After a period of public comment, it is expected that the NLRB will in fact adopt these rules as proposed.  Even though this NLRB decision is likely to be appealed by business groups, all employers should be preparing their management teams on how to respond to union organizing.
Union Avoidance
NAE will be presenting a webinar on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 10:00am for one hour.  The speaker will be well known labor law attorney John H. Feldmann lll.  John has done many training sessions for NAE over the years in union avoidance and has helped many of our members in all types of labor issues.  Cost for this webinar is $59/NAE member attendee and $89/non-NAE member attendee.   To register, please call Jim Nelson at 775-329-4241 or email to
