Employer Coalition Takes Legal Action To Block Unfair, Illegal NLRB Posters

Coalition for a Democratic Workplace Joins Suit Against Labor Board

WASHINGTON, D.C. // SEPTEMBER 26, 2011 // Today, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace joined a lawsuit recently filed by the National Association of Manufacturers to block an ill-advised rule by the out-of-control National Labor Relations Board.

The suit involves the NLRB’s recently published rule, which would force employers in approximately 6 million workplaces to post “notices” that are little more than government-mandated advertisements for unions. The suit asserts that the Board does not have authority under the National Labor Relations Act to promulgate such a rule.

CDW chairman Geoffrey Burr said, “Job creators from across America have recognized the importance of this issue and are taking action. The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace represents every industry in every Congressional district and joining this important lawsuit should signal the common concern that this will only distract job creators from their efforts to get our economy moving again.”

Burr concluded, “This lawsuit is an important tool toward ensuring employees receive relevant information from both employers and paid union organizers, despite an apparently coordinated campaign by the NLRB and Department of Labor to create a one-sided system in which employees will only hear from Big Labor.”
