TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region, urges you to support and co-sponsor S.J. Res. 36, a resolution of disapproval that would repeal recent revisions the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board) made to regulations governing union representation elections.

These regulations replace a process that, in the vast majority of cases, worked fairly and efficiently. In fiscal year 2010, the average time for union representation elections was just ...

Dear Ranking Member Enzi:

On behalf of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, I am writing in support of S.J.Res. 36, a resolution of disapproval in response to the National Labor Relation Board’s (NLRB) rule related to “ambush” elections. The ambush election rule significantly alters the pre-election labor union process in ways that would particularly harm small businesses, and we appreciate your resolution of disapproval to nullify this rule.

Despite Congress refusing to pass card check legislation, it seems clear that the NLRB is intent on implementing card ...

The NLRB rule would cut the timeline for union elections to as short as 10 days from when a petition is filed to when a vote is held. This limits employers’ ability to educate employees. Employers won’t have time to raise substantive issues and concerns or express legitimate views about collective bargaining.

The ambush-election rule will be especially harmful to small businesses. Small companies don’t have the in-house expertise to guide them during union campaigns, especially with timelines as short as 10 days.

The current system works. The NLRB’s own statistics reveal the average time from petition ...

Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association Urges Members to Contact Their U.S. Senators on the NLRB's Ambush Elections Rule.

Over the past several months, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued decisions and proposed rules which will harm employer-employee relations and the ability of manufacturers to create much-needed jobs. One of the worst actions is their rule about election procedures. It is so bad, that in both the U.S. Senate and House, members of Congress are working to overturn this rule.

The NLRB’s actions would burden manufacturers with harsh new rules, making it harder to do business ...

More Info: NLRB Ambush Rule

American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI)

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is seeking to impose severe and undemocratic limits on the ability of employers to communicate with their employees during union organizing campaigns through an “ambush election” rule, one already rejected by Congress.

If the NLRB is successful, businesses will face “ambush” union elections designed to happen so fast that employers have no real opportunity to communicate with employees, and exclude participation by employees opposed to unionization.

You can help stop the NLRB by urging your members of Congress to support S.J. Res 36 and H.J. Res. 103. Both resolutions utilize powers given ...
