Skip to comments.Business sues to stop union poster rule
Posted on 09/28/2011 3:28:33 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Several business groups have sued to block a new federal rule requiring more than 6 million private U.S. businesses most of them small to display posters promoting unionization.
The National Labor Relations Boards rule, which goes into effect Nov. 14, requires most private employers to display an 11-by 17-inch poster informing employees of their right to form a union. If at least 20% of a firms workforce does not speak English, it must post the notice in multiple languages.
Failure to display the poster will be treated as an unfair labor practice.
The labor boards rule says it is needed to protect employees right to form a union. For employees to fully exercise their (National Labor Relations Act) rights, they must know that those rights exist and that the board protects those rights.
In their lawsuits, the business groups allege that the poster rule exceeds the boards powers under federal law.

This could create as much chaos as the community reinvestment act. Absolutely destroy the efficient functioning of small business. Against everything America stands for.
Does this include business under 50 employees?
Like the commies at the NLRB installed by the Muzzie in Chief care about the law.
Its a 2 way street , and payback is going to take care of the unions once and for all.
Good luck collecting those dues when the NLRB under the right wing stops private and public sector unions from withholding dues from paychecks.
The biggest problem is the confusion which this will bring to the marketplace and ultimately our economy! The content of the posters has been the law for quite some time, the fact that they are now requiring it to be posted is the new item.
By posting this, it will seem - to some - that these are new rights and many will act upon them as a reason for lawsuits or simply to start forming unions, which will further cripple our current economy!
The NLRB’s argument is specious at best, since there are a multitude of federal laws which are on the books; however, not every law is required to be posted! I would make that argument in the courts! Requiring this ONE poster, covering only UNION rights is obviously biased and is nothing more than an attempt to expand union growth! There is no good reason for this one section to be separated from the rest of the federal laws and lifted upon high!
I wish to be in compliance of all laws. Therefore I will post this pro-union information. I will also be asking that ICE drop by every month to make sure right to work documents are checked of all my employees. I will also ask that the IRS make sure I am deducting enough from my employees pay to cover what they owe the gubmint. I want to abide by the law dontcha know.
I agree and it is definitely coming to them.
Now I wouldn't call us 'right wing'. We are Constitutional conservatives. Completely in sync with what America is founded on and, God willing will continue to be. Everyone else is radical this or that. We are the norm.
I'm sorry, nothing personal and I'm sure you understand but I've always thought the term was leftist propaganda.
Exactly right. Well said.
Go ahead and post it.I’ll post a huge banner listing the injustices of unions right beside it.
Look for the union label:
Restraint of trade
campaign finance irregularities
conflict of interest
It’s really important that Dear Reader reach out and grab as many as possible leading up to the election. Americans need to be desparate to get rid of this marxist kook and his merry band of Maoist thugs.
Buy a manual of all federal laws and post that on the company bulletin board. Your argument is you are making all rights availabe to employees. So what if it weighs a ton.
