NLRB releases update on “quickie election” vote scheduled tomorrow

As mentioned in our post earlier today, the National Labor Relations Board has scheduled a vote tomorrow afternoon on some of its “quickie election” rules proposed earlier this year. The Board has just released an update on tomorrow’s vote with the full text of the resolution to be voted upon. Apparently, at tomorrow’s meeting the discussion is to focus on the process for the final regulation, which will then be voted on sometime before Member Becker leaves the Board at the end of the year. Also, in response to Member Hayes’ letter to Rep. Kline, Board Chairman Pearce has disclosed that Hayes allegedly threatened to resign from the Board so it would lose its quorum and ability to act on the regulation unless Hayes gets his way on process. Obviously, this is a fluid situation but tomorrow's NLRB meeting should be interesting.

The meeting, scheduled for 2:30 p.m. EST, is open to the public and will be broadcast live via webcast on the Board’s website. Check back after the vote for an analysis of this issue.
