IWLA Comments on NLRB Election Protection Rule

On Jan. 9, IWLA and allied organizations from the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW) filed comments in support of the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) “Election Protection Rule.” The proposed rule would help improve and clarify its representation case procedures.

The rule would allow employees a 45-day window to request a secret ballot election to decertify a union that was voluntarily recognized by an employer based on “card check,” replace the current “blocking charge” policy with a “vote-and-impound” procedure requiring the decertification election to continue but impounding votes until the charge is settled, and changes the special rules for the construction industry by allowing employees to demand an election if the agreement between a union and employer has not been certified by majority support.
