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.
The National Labor Relations Board certainly did not wait long to take the next step in changing the landscape of union organizing to promote the success of labor interests in representation campaigns.
On December 15, the National Labor Relations Board’s final rule amending the current procedures for handling union representation elections (which has become known as the “quickie” or “ambush” election rule) was published in the Federal Register. The final rule will become effective on April 14, 2015.
As expected, the National Labor Relations Board again adopted new Rules for union representation cases, significantly reducing the period between the filing of a petition and a union election.

For some reason, today seems to be Labor Day – that is, all of the significant actions we cover deal with the regulation of employment of some type.
Here we go again. The National Labor Relations Board (“Board” or “NLRB”) has adopted its expedited election rules that have been previously proposed twice and approved in part once, only to be ruled invalid by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on procedural grounds.
