    Federal appeals court strikes down union notification requirement

    Employers cannot be required to post a notice that tells their workers they have a right to join a union and bargain for better wages, a federal appeals court ruled in the latest setback for the National Labor Relations Board.The so-called poster rule would have required more than 6 million private employers to post a one-page notice in a prominent place. Labor leaders hoped it would help stem the long decline in union membership in the private sector. Only about 7% of private-sector employees belong to unions.
    But in a 3-0 decision Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled the NLRB had overstepped its authority by requiring this "notification of employee rights."
    This year, the same conservative-leaning court ruled that President Obama's recess appointments to the labor board were illegal.

    More and more anti labor decisions and acts. When will it ever end? The National Assn. of Manufacturers called these posters "aggressive".. How is posting something on a wall notifying people of their rights "aggressive"? We might as well take down minimum wage posters, workplace safety posters now as well, since hey you know they notify people of their rights..

    Where's Obama now that you need him?

    All I hear about is the unholy alliance between the Unions and Obama. So how is this possible? Doesn't he control everything?

    Wait a sec, the NLRB wanted to force employers to put up posts telling workers that they can join unions and bargain for better wages? What? Will workers be required to tell employers the lowest wage they are willing to work for? Remember, we need to be fair.

    Are you saying there are no minimum wage posters in a workplace? Cuz every place i have worked at i see this somewhere


    Or are you saying that workers have to tell their employees the lowest wage they will work for? As in physically tell? Because if so that would be impossible to enforce and make no sense and makes no connection in these two scenarios.

    The NLRB does not have the right to do this. It was the correct decision. From the part you did not quote: "Most workplaces include a variety of notices telling employees of their rights under the law, but business lawyers said Congress did not give the NLRB a similar authority. They said the labor board is supposed to act as a referee or judge in disputes between management and labor, not as an advocate for more union organizing." (emphasis added)

    Simply informing workers of their rights is "advocating more union organizing"?

    since you think not requiring them to is anti-union, yes. BTW, they do not have a right to a union, just the right to try to unionize. Can't have a union of 1.

    No. I said no "its anti labor" meaning that notifying people of their basic work rights is against labor rights as a whole union and non union alike.
    So tell me again how is simply informing workers of their rights is "advocating more union organizing"?

    That just doesn't make any sense at all.
