Video and transcript of NLRB's hearing on proposed R-case procedures available

As previously posted, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) heard public comments from interested parties on April 10 and 11, 2014 regarding proposed amendments to R-case, or representation case, procedures.

Employers argued that the proposed rules would lead to “ambush” elections and would violate the due-process rights of employers. Weinberg, Roger & Rosenfeld attorney Caren Sencer and other union advocates argued that the NLRA was designed to protect workers and promote their right to organize so that they can collectively improve their working conditions, goals which the rules should facilitate.

The video and transcript from the NLRB’s April 10-11 hearings on its proposed R-case procedures are now available online. You can access the transcript at http://www.nlrb.gov/openmeeting and the videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/NLRB.
