Federal Court in Texas Rules on NLRB Ambush Election Rule

On the subject of today's ruling in Texas concerning ambush labor union elections, CEI's labor policy expert Aloysius Hogan offered the following comment:

“This decision leaves unchecked the NLRB’s new ambush-election regulation that has already reduced the time workers have to consider whether becoming unionized is worth the very real trade-offs,” said Aloysius Hogan, Competitive Enterprise Institute senior fellow. "With that time for consideration and debate diminished by about a third, workers are now faced with a timeline that violates John F. Kennedy’s 30-day ‘safeguard against rushing employees into an election where they are unfamiliar with the issues.’ The ill-conceived National Labor Relations Board rule foists an unfair ‘Vote now; understand later’ procedure on workers and exposes their private information to pressure tactics by unions – the same unions that are exempt from federal extortion laws.”
