Acting NLRB General Counsel Provides Guidelines for Expedited Union Elections

Topics: Union-Management Relations

Legislative and legal efforts challenging the NLRB's expedited election procedures have thus far failed, and today is the effective date for these new procedures.  The new NLRB expedited election procedures will likely make it easier for unions to win elections in many cases.  All NLRB union elections will now be conducted under the new expedited procedures.  Last week, NLRB General Counsel, Lafe Solomon, publicized a memorandum explaining how NLRB Regional Offices will implement these new procedures.  In addition, Solomon's office also published a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the new procedures.
