On April 30, 2012, the NLRB’s new rules which will result in quick and easy union organizing go into effect. These rule changes are expected to result in a surge of union organizing in industries and businesses long seen as safe from union organizing. NLRB rulings in 2011 allow unions to target small segments of a company’s workforce, which can lead to piecemeal organization efforts. These new rules will seriously limit the time and opportunity that employers have to communicate with employees before a vote on representation.
At the same time the NLRB’s requirement that all employers, whether they have union represented employees or not, post in their workplaces a written official Notice advising employees of their right to organize and be represented by a union. The NLRB has also announced a larger educational initiative, including setting up a new website and publishing brochures to inform non union workers of their rights under the NLRA.
