The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has announced that it will resume conducting representation elections on April 6, 2020.

On March 19, 2020, because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the NLRB had ordered the temporary suspension of Board-conducted elections through April 3, 2020.

In the announcement, NLRB Chairman John F. Ring remarked that the NLRB’s General Counsel had advised the NLRB “that appropriate measures are available to permit elections to resume in a safe and effective manner ….”  Chairman Ring did not offer any specifics, noting that the manner of conducting elections safely and effectively “will be determined by the NLRB’s Regional Directors.”
