The National Labor Relations Board has voted 2-to-1 to approve a resolution to proceed with a limited number of amendments to the NLRB election process. The amendments are drawn from a more comprehensive proposal put forward by the Board in June.
Chairman Mark Pearce and Member Craig Becker voted in favor of the resolution, while Member Brian Hayes voted against it, during a one-hour public meeting at Board headquarters on Wednesday, Nov. 30. A video recording of the meeting will be available on the Board website, www.nlrb.gov, later today.
As a result of the vote, a final rule will be drafted containing the proposed six amendments, which seek to reduce delays and unnecessary litigation in the pre-election process. The final rule will be subject to approval of the Board, and if approved, will be published in the Federal Register.
