On December 12, 2014, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) implemented a final rule amending the agency’s representation-case procedures. The long-anticipated “ambush election” rules, which govern the procedures for union representation elections, go into effect on April 14, 2015. The new rules arguably constitute the most sweeping regulatory change ever implemented by the Board.

For a detailed analysis of the new rules, read our article, “NLRB Issues “Ambush Election” Rules—Union Elections Now Likely to Occur in Less than 21 Days.” In addition, to learn more about the new ambush election rules, join our speakers, C. Thomas Davis (Nashville), Brian E. Hayes (Washington, D.C.), and Mark M. Stubley (Greenville) for a one-hour webinar, New “Ambush Election” Rule: Unionizing a Workforce Just Got Much Easier, on Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 2 p.m. To register for this timely program, click here.
