Labor board expands burden on business to disclose worker info to unions

The Washington Examiner references Trey Kovacs on the National Labor Relations Board's ruling that hospital managers must turn over all employee contact information to the union.

The requirement that employee contact information be disclosed has been one of the more controversial aspects because of its expansiveness. "It is already bad enough that the NLRB is forcing employers to betray employee trust by handing over their private information to labor unions that do not represent them. Now the NLRB is using the expanded [rule] to give unions another avenue to object to elections results that are unfavorable and force another vote," said Trey Kovacs, policy analyst at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute.
