WASHINGTON (CN) – The National Association of Manufacturers claims the National Labor Relations Board does not have the power to force employers to post “notices to employees, in conspicuous places, informing them of their NLRA [National Labor Relations Act] rights”.
The trade group, which claims to represent 12,000 manufacturers, says the NLRB exceeded its powers in the Final Rule it published in the Federal Register on Aug. 30.
It claims that the National Labor Relations Act does not grant the NLRB “the authority to assert jurisdiction over any employer absent the filing of a representation petition or unfair labor practice charge.”
The manufacturers want the rule enjoined “in the public interest,” and says that doing so “presents no harm to the Board.”
The manufacturers are represented in Federal Court by Peter Kirsanow with Benesch Friedlander Coplan & Aronoff of Cleveland and William Miossi with Winston & Strawn of Washington, D.C.
