President Hansen Speaks Out on the NLRB's Rule to Modernize the Union Election Process

Joe Hansen, International President of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Union, today released the following statement after the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) approved a final rule to modernize the union election process.
"This NLRB rule is a modest but important first step toward ensuring a level playing field for workers in the union election process. Preventing unnecessary delays and frivolous litigation means less time for employers to intimidate, harass, and in some cases fire pro-union employees. Every worker has the right to decide whether he or she wants a union, free of interference.

“Now it is time for the Senate to confirm President Obama’s nominees to the NLRB. Sharon Block and Richard Griffin are fully qualified and deserve an up or down vote. Leaving the Board short of a quorum in 2012 is unacceptable.”

I think that was a good idea. If that is what good to everyone then let that rule be make. Good luck.
