NLRB Backs Down on Pro-Union Posters
« on: January 03, 2014, 05:26:10 PM »

The National Labor Relations Board has abandoned the administration’s attempts to force businesses to post pro-union notices in workplaces.

Two federal appeals courts struck down an NLRB rule that would have forced employers to put up the signs. The NLRB had until Thursday, Jan. 2, to appeal the cases to the Supreme Court, but quietly allowed the deadline to pass.

A NLRB spokesman said the agency was not prepared to comment on the matter.

Critics of the posters celebrated the NLRB’s decision.

The “unanimous voice of the judiciary has forced the Obama Labor Board to back down,” said Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Foundation.

“By promulgating this sweeping new requirement, the NLRB clearly overstepped its statutory authority in a heavy-handed attempt to force more workers into forced unionism,” Mix said.

The notices rejected by the federal courts were weighted toward pro-union organizing, as opposed to traditional worker safety notices, critics said.
