On April 6, President Obama vetoed a joint resolution of Congress that sought to block the “quickie election” rule issued by the National Labor Relations Board. Because there were not enough votes to override the veto, the rule took effect on April 14. The “quickie election” rule changes the petition, election, and hearing process, tilting the “R-case playing field” further in favor of unions, leaving them largely in control of the timing of elections and targeting of election groups. On the same day as the President’s veto of the Congressional resolution, the NLRB General Counsel issued a Memorandum that addresses ambiguities and gaps in the rule. Meanwhile, court challenges to the rule filed by employer groups and others are pending in federal district courts in the District of Columbia and in Texas. A hearing in the Texas case was held April 24, and a hearing in two consolidated D.C. cases is scheduled for May 15. Will the courts step in?
