Michigan Chamber Voices Opposition to National Labor Relations Board Rule

February 7, 2011

The Michigan Chamber recently voiced its opposition to a proposed rule from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to force nearly every business in America to post a biased notice to their employees of their rights to unionize under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).  The Chamber’s comments can be viewed here.

The proposed rule would mandate a physical posting of the rule AND electronic posting if employers customarily communicate with employees through electronic communications. The NLRB's proposed rule would also establish new "unfair labor practice" liabilities on employers if they fail to comply with the proposed posting requirements. 

If you would like to submit a comment to the proposed rule, you may submit comments electronically. Comments are due by February 22, 2011.  We’d love to see what you submit, so please send Wendy Block, Director of Health Policy and Human Resources, a copy of your comments should you make them.
