NLRB Delays Implementation of "Quickie Election" Rule Cutbacks

March 24, 2020

The National Labor Relations Board has announced that it is postponing the effective date of its final rule modifying the prior Administration’s regulation on union representation-case procedures, often referred to as the “quickie election” or “ambush election” rule.  The effective date has been pushed back from April 16, 2020, to May 31, 2020.  

The present rule rolls back some of the AGC-opposed provisions of the quickie election rule and provides helpful clarifications.  The Board explains that the modifications “retain the essentials of the Agency’s existing representation rules but allow for a fairer and more-efficient election process.”  More information on the rule is provided here.
