NRA asks agency to withdraw workplace-poster proposal

The National Restaurant Association today filed comments with the National Labor Relations Board asking the agency to withdraw a proposed mandate that would require U.S. businesses to post an 11" x 17" notice about the National Labor Relations Act.

More than 30 state restaurant associations joined the NRA in the comments urging the NLRB to withdraw its proposal. The NRA also joined with 78 other national organizations in filing comments as part of the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace. The CDW also opposes the NLRB poster mandate.

"In essence, the NLRB is seeking your help in organizing your workforce," said Angelo Amador, the Association's vice president of labor and workforce policy. "If the proposed rule became final, it would mandate that employers post a pro-union-biased notice of rights under the National Labor Relations Act in the workplace and includes some new penalties for noncompliance. It also creates a new source of 'drive-by' litigation for trial attorneys."

One of the NLRB's five Board members dissented from the December proposal because he said "the Board lacks the statutory authority to promulgate or enforce” the proposed workplace poster. Read the NLRB's notice of proposed rulemaking, the NRA/state restaurant association comments, and the CDW comments.
