On December 12, 2014, the National Labor Relations Board issued the so-called Quickie Election rule, designed to shorten the timeline for NLRB elections and minimize pre-election litigation. The rule is set to take effect on April 14, 2015.

While the validity of the rule is expected to be challenged, union organizing efforts, which have languished for years, are certain to receive a boost from the Board’s action in the meantime. Employers unprepared for the rule will be at a disadvantage.

A Jackson Lewis webinar detailing the rule and preventive steps your organization may consider will be held on Tuesday, January 6 at 12:00 EST. Register for the webinar here.
