Court’s Rejection of Ambush Elections is a Victory for Manufacturers
NAM Hails Court for Overturning Deeply Flawed, Unnecessary Rule
05/14/12 - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement after the U.S. District Court today invalidated the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) “ambush elections” rule, which would have expedited the unionization election process.
“Overturning the ambush elections rule is a key victory for job creators and the 12 million men and women working in manufacturing. The NLRB has consistently overstepped its authority and attempted to enforce unnecessary and damaging rules that threaten workplace relations by creating hostile work environments where none exist. In invalidating the ambush elections rule, the Court rightly rejected one of the Board’s most misguided policies. The NAM will continue to lead the way in opposing rules and regulations that stand in the way of job creation and economic growth.”
