Battling the board

During recent months, NRCA has made significant progress in the fight against excessive government regulations. The victories came in the form of favorable court decisions regarding litigation challenging regulations issued by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Challenging NLRB

NRCA represents union, open-shop and dual-shop employers and supports policies that maintain an equitable balance in labor-management relations. Unfortunately, NLRB, an independent agency tasked with enforcing U.S. labor laws, has pursued an activist agenda with the objective of tilting the playing field in favor of unions. NLRB has issued regulations and decisions that would be burdensome for employers, particularly small businesses, and curtail the opportunity for employers and workers to have meaningful dialogue regarding complex issues involved with collective bargaining.

NRCA, as member of the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW), has challenged NLRB initiatives and appointments to the board in court to preserve a balance in labor-management relations and protect employers from burdensome regulations. This has proved to be successful.
