Message from Tom Kochan, EPRN Principal Researcher, sent July 3, 2011:
As you may know the National Labor Relations Board recently issued proposed rule changes for representation election processes and is now in the open comment period. Ellen Dannin, our Employment Policy Research Network Labor and Employment Law Topic Coordinator has written a very good introductory blog on the proposed rules and has started the comment process.
Please read the above postings on NLRB rule making, read the Board's summary of the proposed changes that can be found at http://www.nlrb.gov/node/525 and contribute your analysis either by entering a comment on any of the postings listed above.
Ellen and I will summarize the comments received and forward them to the NLRB during the public commentary period so that our collective expertise is reflected in the process.
It is really important for us to show we can respond to policy/rule proposals in a timely manner (public hearings are scheduled for July 18-19; we need your input well before then) so I hope you will contribute your views and indicate the research base from which your analysis is drawn.
Thanks and have a great 4th of July weekend.
