Airline Legal Alert: NMB's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking


On October 29, 2009, Harry Hoglander and Linda Puchala, two members of the National Mediation Board (NMB), submitted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking with the Federal Register. As we noted in our October 30, 2009 Legal Alert, 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 proposal would also change the election ballot by providing employees the option to register a "no" vote.
