CDW Files Extension Request on NLRB’s Representation-Case Procedures NPRM
Washington, DC – On November 22, CDW requested the NLRB issue a 30-day extension to the comment period for the Board’s notice of proposed rulemaking making several changes to representation-case procedures. The current comment period runs until January 3, 2023, spanning three major US holidays.
CDW asked the Board to provide the extension to ensure the regulated community has an opportunity to weigh in on the potential impact the proposed changes could have on business operations, the workforce, and the economy generally. As we explain in the request, businesses – and especially smaller entities – likely will not be able to redirect resources and valuable time during the holiday season to provide meaningful comments to the Board. Moreover, resources are already limited due to the current economy environment.
