The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has thrown in the towel in its 2½-year effort to compel most private-sector employers to display a poster informing employees of their right to form or join unions.
The NLRB had until Jan. 2 to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court a federal court’s ruling that the board lacked the rule-making authority to require the poster. When the deadline passed without an appeal, the “Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act” poster officially became a collectors’ item.
Note: Private-sector employers that do business with the federal government must still display a similar poster mandated by a different NLRB rule.
