Q. I understand that the rule requiring private employers to post a notice about employees’ union rights is dead and won’t become law. I may be considered a federal contractor and there is a provision in my contract about posting a notice of union-related rights. Am I free to ignore that?
A. Not exactly. While the notice posting rule enacted by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) will not become law anytime soon, most federal contractors are subject to a requirement that they provide their employees a similar notice of rights. This posting requirement comes from an executive order that is unaffected by the blocking of the NLRB notice-posting rule.
Find background on this issue and a link to the required posting for federal contractors in "Court: No need to display the NLRB's pro-union poster."
