WASHINGTON, D.C., January 6, 2014 — Executive Director of the NFIB Small Business Legal Center Karen Harned issued the following statement in response to the NLRB announcing it will no longer require businesses to display pro-union posters:
“Today’s announcement is a victory for small-business owners who have been subjected to the illegal actions of a labor board that has consistently acted outside of its authority and failed in its duty as a neutral arbiter. The National Federation of Independent Business has the led the charge – as a plaintiff – against the NLRB’s “Notice Posting Rule” decision, because it served as blatant pro-union propaganda. We are pleased the labor board has decided to comply with several court rulings and declined to pursue this troubling agenda.”
Executive Director of the NFIB Small Business Legal Center Karen Harned is available for comment.
This announcement follows the United States Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., May 2013 ruling in favor of NFIB in its challenge to Poster Rule. NFIB is the nation’s leading small-business advocacy organization, representing 350,000 small businesses around the country.
