CDW: Illegal “Ambush” Elections Rule Will Be Challenged In Court

National coalition announces intent to sue federal labor relations agency

WASHINGTON, D.C. // DECEMBER 12, 2014 // Today, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace announced that it would sue to invalidate the National Labor Relations Board’s newly released rule that paves the way for unfair and illegal “ambush” elections.

CDW legal strategist Josh Ulman said, “The NLRB’s rule is designed to prevent employees from gathering the facts before they cast a ballot for or against union representation. The rule is yet another attempt by this agency to push the agenda of large labor unions at the expense of employees and employers. Time and again, the one-sided agenda of the president and his NLRB has been beaten back in court, and CDW will again look to protect millions of American workplaces by seeking redress through a lawsuit.”

CDW noted that it intends to file suit within a week.
