NLRB Publishes Final Rule Amending Election Procedures

By a 2-1 vote, the National Labor Relations Board (the “Board”) adopted a Final Rule amending its election case procedures.  The Board’s approval of the Final Rule will be published today (Thursday, December 22, 2011) in the Federal Register.  This brings to a close – at least for the time being – the current Board’s attempt to alter its certification election rules to the advantage of organized labor.  The changes made pursuant to the Final Rule will become effective April 30, 2012.  For an analysis of the changes and their implications for employers, click here.
