The NLRB recently announced that it will not seek Supreme Court review of two U.S. Court of Appeals decisions invalidating the NLRB’s Notice Posting Rule. The Notice Posting Rule would have required most private sector employers to post a notice in a prominent location explaining to workers their rights to join a union and bargain collectively. Employers objected to the new rule, arguing that it forced them to display labor laws in a way that was skewed in favor of unionization.
This is good news for employers, although in its announcement, the NLRB reminded the public that the workplace poster was still available on the NLRB website and could still be displayed voluntarily by employers at their work sites.
