Yesterday, 16 Senate Democrats sent a letter to Mark Gaston Pearce, the Chairman of the National Labor Relations Board, urging him to “vigorously defend” the Board’s controversial quickie election procedures. Issued last month, the “quickie election” rules are designed to cut down the time between the filing of an election petition to a vote to as little as eleven days.

Monday Morning Regulatory Review – 1/12/14: NLRB Election Rule Litigation II; Regulatory Reform; & Conciliation Prerequisite
A few small nuggets deserve attention, although no earth shattering developments rocked administrative law last week.
As we alerted you last week, on Monday the National Labor Relations Board published its long-awaited final rule on so-called “quickie” or “ambush” elections. The final rule is similar, but not identical, to a prior Board attempt in 2011. The new rule will take effect April 14, 2015, but employers will need to be prepared well before the effective date.
The National Labor Relations Board has issued a final rule making significant changes to the procedures leading up to union representation elections.
Feeling the holiday spirit, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) (i.e., management’s “Grinch”) has stolen any chance for employers to enjoy the holidays, while bestowing another significant Christmas gift on Big Labor—new union representation election rules (or as many are calling them, the Ambush Election Rules).
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is at it again. Unions are already winning close to 70% of NLRB-conducted elections.
