Federal Appeals Court Strikes Down NLRB Rule to Push More Workers into Union Ranks

Right to Work Foundation fights Labor Board's decision to promote monopoly unionism in virtually every workplace in America

Washington, DC (May 7, 2013) – Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) controversial new rule requiring virtually every private-sector employer in the country to post one-sided information about employee rights online and in the workplace, even if the employer had never been accused of unfair labor practices.

Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Foundation, made the following statement in the wake of the ruling:

"National Right to Work Foundation attorneys argued that the NLRB had exceeded its authority granted by Congress.

"We are pleased that the D.C. Circuit has reined in one of the NLRB's more outrageous efforts to expand itself into a taxpayer-funded union organizing operation by holding that the federal agency cannot compel private entities to post pro-union messages in their workplaces.

"The NLRB's unprecedented actions infringed upon free speech and clearly exceeded the agency's statutory authority. This is a good day both for workers and all who value workplace independence and free speech."
