Employers who want to present their workers with alternatives to labor unions may soon have less time to do so if the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has its say. On December 21, 2011, the NLRB announced final rule changes to its election procedures. The final rule, scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012, would significantly shorten the number of days between the filing of an election petition and the holding of the election. The new rules would reduce this time to an estimated 14 to 24 days, according to some experts.
