U.S. Chamber files amicus brief supporting secret ballot election method of determining employee free choice

July 17, 2007

NCLC filed an amicus brief with the National Labor Relations Board supporting the franchisee hotel’s RM petition (an employer-filed petition which seeks a representation election conducted by the Board) where the union sought to enforce a “labor peace agreement” which included a living wage ordinance enacted by the city of Hartford. The issue before the Board is whether an employer and its employees have a right to a secret ballot election conducted by the NLRB rather than endure union tactics intended to force agreement to a card check recognition procedure. NCLC argued that an election is the better way to ascertain employee free choice on whether to be represented by the union.
