The National Labor Relations Board 2015 Year in Review - An Overview of Major Developments in Labor Law

McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC

To mark the 80th birthday of the National Labor Relations Act, the National Labor Relations Board apparently decided to make history in 2015. The Board did just that, issuing several ground breaking decisions, and in the process addressed facts and circumstances that could not possibly have been contemplated in 1935. The ramifications of the Board’s agenda will certainly have both short and long term impact on employers and labor unions.

Generally, the Board continued to make life miserable for employers throughout the United States. We have written regularly about the Board’s aggressive, pro-union and employee-friendly agenda over the past several years, and we can report that the Board certainly did not change course in 2015. In 2015, a fully constituted Board finalized new election rules, issued a number of controversial decisions, defended itself in the federal courts of appeal, and even took the time to tackle some new initiatives. By all accounts, it was another whirlwind year for employers covered by the Act with compliance becoming increasingly difficult. We take the opportunity to summarize the highlights below.
