Board Issues Technical Correction to Representation Rule

Office of Public Affairs

Today, the Federal Register published a technical correction to the Board’s Final Rule on Representation Case Procedures, published August 24, 2023. The document published today corrects two outdated cross-references. The correction makes no substantive change to the rule, which meaningfully reduced the time it takes to get from petition to election in contested elections and expedited the resolution of post-election litigation.

Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year.
