CDW Submits Amicus Brief in UPS v NLRB

Washington, DC – On October 22, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, along with eleven organizations representing employers from various industries across the country, submitted an amicus brief in UPS Ground Freight v NLRB. The case is the first challenge before a federal court of appeals to the Obama-era ambush elections rulemaking, which drastically shortened the time period for a union representation election and limited the rights of employees and employers alike. The brief calls on the DC Circuit to grant UPS’ Petition for Review to address the rule’s blatant disregard for employers’ due process rights as well as the Board’s inability or unwillingness to remedy the problems created by the rule. CDW will continue to fight back against the unfair ambush elections rule whenever possible.
