Court drives nail in coffin of pro-union poster requirement

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has refused a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) bid to retry a May case in which the court said employers couldn’t be required to display a pro-union poster.

The Sept. 4 ruling likely puts to rest NLRB legal efforts to revive its controversial “Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act” poster. The poster explicitly stated that the National Labor Relations Act guarantees workers the right to form or join a union.

Litigation over the poster began almost as soon as it was released in August 2011.

Business groups that filed suit to stop the posting requirement said they were engaged in a “fight against an overreaching NLRB.”

Note: Federal contractors must still display a similar poster mandated by a different NLRB rule.
