NLRB delays poster deadline

January 6, 2012
The National Labor Relations Board has further postponed, now until April 30, 2012, the requirement that its new employee rights poster be prominently displayed in union and non-union workplaces. The former deadline was Jan. 31, 2012.
The purpose of the delay is resolve legal challenges to the NLRB’s authority to impose the mandatory posting requirement.
All dealerships are required to display this poster by the implementation date. The rule has been challenged in federal courts in the District of Columbia and in South Carolina.
The CATA and the NADA are involved in the lawsuit in the District of Columbia through their membership in the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace.
In another move, the NLRB released its final rule which radically changes the union election procedures for union representation elections. The new rule shortens election time frames, thus greatly limiting employees’ opportunities to hear from employers in order to make an informed choice on unionization.
The NADA submitted comments opposing the changes, but the NLRB fast-tracked a reduced version of the amendments without taking further stakeholder input.
Through their Coalition for a Democratic Workplace memberships, the CATA and the NADA are involved in a lawsuit in federal court to block these changes as well.
