RILA Issues First-Ever Key Vote

The Retail Industry Leaders Association will compile a legislative scorecard for the first time this year. It issued on Thursday its first-ever key vote alert in support of a Senate resolution disapproving of a National Labor Relations Board rule that shortened the required time between when a union election is announced and when it is held, which opponents call "ambush elections."

"S. J. Res. 36 protects employers' free speech and due process rights during a union election," RILA's Katherine Lugar wrote in the alert. "In addition, the resolution ensures employees have access to critical information and time to consider the issues at hand prior to entering the voting booth. Should the ambush election rule be allowed to stand, employees and employers, from companies large and small will be harmed."

Senators may vote on the resolution next week.
