HARDI supported bill aimed at the NLRB passes House Committee

The Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act (H.R. 2597) has passed through the House Committee on Education and Workforce this week. This legislation, which HARDI along with a coalition of businesses and associations strongly supported, would "prohibit the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to relocate, shut down, or transfer a business under any circumstance."

The NLRB has come under fire for an aggressive string of rulings and proposals. A current proposal by the NLRB would shorten election times for the formation of Unions, thereby limiting the amount of information that employees may receive before making this monumental decision. Such "Quickie" elections are strongly favored by Labor Unions.

H.R. 2597 is expected to pass a vote of the entire House and will then move to the Senate.
