Airline Legal Alert: Hoglander and Puchala Propose to Change NMB Voting Rules


On October 29, 2009, two members of the National Mediation Board (NMB), Harry Hoglander and Linda Puchala, submitted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for publication in the Federal Register, proposing to change the "majority of the craft or class" voting rule that the NMB has used throughout its 75-year history. The proposal would result in the outcome of union elections being determined by a majority of the employees who vote, rather than requiring a majority of the employees in the craft or class to vote for representation, as currently is the case. The Chairman of the NMB, Elizabeth Dougherty, dissented from the proposal.
