NMMA urges opposition to union election proposal

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is encouraging its members to let the National Labor Relations Board know they oppose proposed quick-snap union election rules.

The proposed quick-snap election rules would “ambush companies and would give employers as few as 10 days to communicate with their employees between the time they learn that a union is trying to organize the work force and the election. With the rules in place, unions could begin organizing a work force secretly and then ambush an employer once enough signatures are collected,” according to an alert sent to members from NMMA president Thom Dammrich.

Union leaders are rallying behind the proposed changes to election procedures and are having union members flood the NLRB with messages in support.

“They failed to push their agenda through Congress with the Employee Free Choice Act, which manufacturers helped to defeat,” Dammrich added. “Now, they see an opportunity to achieve their goals changing union election rules through regulation.”

The deadline to send in comments is Aug. 22.
