NLRB Gives Up on Poster Fight

nlrbOn January 6, 2014, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) gave up on its fight to require all employers to post a notice informing employees of their right to form a union.  The NLRB’s mandatory poster rule was invalidated by two separate U.S. Courts of Appeals, and the prospects of the NLRB winning at the Supreme Court were slim.  This brings a conclusion to a fight that began in 2011 when the NLRB ordered all employers to post the notice, which many argued was biased in favor of unions. 

The NLRB’s statement on the poster can be found here.
