Dealing with union organizing campaigns just became more difficult for employers. On April 14, 2015, the long anticipated National Labor Relations Board’s Rules governing union organizing campaigns and elections went into effect. These so-called “ambush” election rules will likely catch companies off guard when they are faced with a new union organizing campaign. In fact, the changes are so broad sweeping that no one, not even the Board, knows the full implications of the changes. In fact, the NLRB recommended that unions and employers seek legal counsel under the new rules.

Husch Blackwell attorney Sonni Nolan discusses these developments.
