NLRB Announces Modifications to Representation Case Procedures

WASHINGTON, DC– The NLRB today announced a series of modifications to the Agency’s representation case procedures. Retaining the essentials of the Agency’s existing representation rules, the selective changes create a fairer and more-efficient election process.

The modifications include clarifications to procedures prior to an election that better ensure the opportunity for litigation and resolution of unit scope and voter eligibility issues. The changes also permit parties additional time to comply with the various pre-election requirements instituted in 2014.
