The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has decided to grant an injunction against the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) “Notification of Employee Rights” notice posting rule.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has decided to grant an injunction against the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) “Notification of Employee Rights” notice posting rule.

Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) celebrated the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit decision to grant an injunction in the legal challenge against the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) “Notification of Employee Rights” notice posting rule.

Considered a major victory for ABC, the NLRB’s “Notification of Employee Rights” notice posting rule’s compliance date of April 30 is no longer in effect, as the injuction places the rule on hold while the court considers the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace’s appeal of the U.S. District Court’s unsatisfactory ruling.

“For the last several months, ABC has vigorously fought NLRB’s politically motivated policies that threaten to paralyze the construction industry in order to benefit the special interests of politically powerful unions,” stated ABC Vice President of Federal Affairs Geoff Burr. “The NLRB’s notice posting rule is a perfect example of how the pro-union board has abandoned its role as a neutral enforcer and arbiter of labor law.”

The April 17 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit follows the decision issued by the U.S. District Court for South Carolina, stating that the NLRB does not have the statutory authouiity to require business owners to post a biased poster.
