On July 7, as expected, the Board invited briefs in Miller & Anderson, Inc., a representation case in which the union asks the Board to overturn its Oakwood Care Center rule on joint employment. The Oakwood Care rule provides that true “employees” will not be combined in a bargaining unit with workers supplied by a temporary staffing contractor, unless the employer and the contractor both consent. The Board’s notices give the impression of an even-handed attempt to hear both sides, but many commentators see the Board as simply going through the motions with a predetermined outcome. That outcome would be a return to the rule of M.B. Sturgis, which allows bargaining units that include “employees” and workers who are supplied by a staffing agency, regardless of the consent of the employer and the agency.
