NLBMDA welcomes NLRB’s decision to abandon Poster Rule

BY HBSDEALER Staff

The National Lumber and Buiding Materials Dealers Association (NLBMDA) released a statement this morning welcoming the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) decision to abandon the Poster Rule.

"The NLRB clearly overstepped its authority with the Poster Rule," said Michael O’Brien, president & CEO of NLBMDA. "NLBMDA is pleased that the NLRB will not continue its misguided pursuit of the rule and this is good news for lumber and building material dealers."

The Poster Rule would have required nearly 6 million employers to post an 11-by-17 inch notice in the workplace notfiying employees of their rights to unionize.

The D.C. Circuit Court had issued an emergency injunction, by way of a request by the NLBMDA-inclusive Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, against the rule two weeks before it was scheduled to take effect in April 2012.

The Court then considered an appeal of a lower court decision upholding the rule, and in May of last year, overturned the regulation on the grounds that it violated the free speech rights of employers under the National Labor Relations Act. In September, the NLRB made a decision not to rehear the case.
