NLRB signals Election Rule roll-back

Tomorrow the NLRB will publish a "Request for Information" [Full text] – the first step in the inevitable roll-back of the Board's controversial 2014 Election Rule. In a lengthy explanation – including two dissenting comments – the Board asks three pretty simple questions:

1. Should the 2014 Election Rule be retained without change?

2. Should the 2014 Election Rule be retained with modifications? If so, what should be modified?

3. Should the 2014 Election Rule be rescinded? If so, should the Board revert to the Election Regulations that were in effect prior to the 2014 Election Rule’s adoption, or should the Board make changes to the prior Election Regulations? If the Board should make changes to the prior Election Regulations, what should be changed?

The public is invited to comment. The deadline is February 12, 2018.
