Airline Legal Alert: NMB Maintains Prohibition Against Use of "Hyperlinks" To Voting Website


As reported in a previous Alert, in July 2009 the National Mediation Board (NMB) announced that it was soliciting comments on whether it should permit the use of electronic "hyperlinks" to the website where employees may cast their vote in NMB elections. After receiving and considering those comments, on December 1, 2009, the NMB reaffirmed its position that participants in elections – carriers, unions and individuals involved in the election – may not post hyperlinks to the NMB's voting website. The one modification the NMB did make to its hyperlink policy is to reinstate a hyperlink to the voting site on the NMB's own website,; parties remain free to post hyperlinks to the NMB's website.
