National Right to Work Foundation slams federal court ruling upholding NLRB notice posting rule

The National Right to Work Foundation (NRWF), an antiunion advocacy group, has condemned a ruling by a federal district court judge upholding a rule promulgated by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) requiring almost all employers to post a notice of their employees’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act.

Under the rule, employers who fail to post the notice can be found to have committed an unfair labor practice. In addition, such findings can be used later as evidence of “antiunion animus” in other cases in which an employer is accused of violating federal labor law.

The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, in conjunction with the National Federation of Independent Business, filed the lawsuit challenging the notice-posting rules and criticized the decision for “giving union bosses another tool to push workers into forced union dues ranks.”

According to Patrick Semmens, the NRWF’s legal information director, the ruling “effectively requires every job provider in America, from Mom and Pop shops and small businesses to larger companies, even some religiously affiliated organizations, to post biased notices about workers’ rights.”

The NRWF says it will appeal the ruling.
