Updating our post from yesterday, the Texas business groups who lost their challenge to the NLRB’s “ambush” election rule wasted no time filing a Notice of Appeal (pdf) of that decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. While it is certainly possible that the appeals court could reverse the decision, any such decision will travel a long, hard road. In the meantime, the election rule remains in effect. Stay tuned to this blog for further updates on this appeal, the pending D.C. case, and other updated coverage as the legal battles over this rule continue.
