President Obama on March 31 signed a memorandum of disapproval that effectively vetoed the Congressional Review Act resolution (S.J. Res. 8) to block the National Labor Relations Board’s “ambush” election rule.
The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace, of which NATSO is a member, said it will continue its legal challenge to the rule.
The rule, which dramatically shortens the time frame for businesses to hold union elections to as little as 14 days and dictates procedures for workplace elections that determine whether employees want to be represented by a union, will go into effect April 14 unless a court blocks enforcement.
The resolution passed the Senate 53 to 46 and the House 232 to 186. A veto override is considered unlikely as Republicans are short of the necessary two-thirds majority.
