Arnstein & Lehr Partner Mark Spognardi recently wrote the article, “Employers’ Summer of Disconnect: Obama Labor Board pushes anti-employer agenda,” which appeared in the September 20 issue of the Westlaw Journal. In the article Mr. Spognardi discusses how the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has had a busy summer proposing and implementing rules and issuing decisions designed to promote the unionization of America’s workforce.

In the article, Mr. Spognardi states that the board has issued a final regulatory rule requiring employers to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. He comments that the Obama NLRB has been “delivering victories to organized labor at a time when the public sentiment toward unions has become, at best, distrustful and at worst, disdainful.”
