In a public hearing this summer, business groups weren’t shy in blasting a proposal by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that would expedite the process by which employees vote on forming a union. The proposal would cut to as few as 10 days the gap between when a union files to host an election to when ballots are actually cast. The current average is 38 days.

Brian Hayes, the only Republican member of the NLRB, called the push for such “quickie” or “ambush” elections a “radical manipulation of our election process.” Public comment period ended on Aug. 22. Look for formal proposed regulations this fall at the earliest.
