A federal appeals court on May 7 struck down a two-year-old National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule that would have required private-sector employers to post a notice informing employees of their rights to join or form a union. The controversial poster mandate has been on hold due to a series of legal challenges, and is still under review by another federal court.
Pro-business groups applauded the ruling, saying the “activist” and “aggressive” NLRB didn’t have authority to force employers to display the poster.
