In the final year of his two-term tenure, President Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board and Department of Labor continued their double-barreled efforts to remake labor law to benefit labor unions. Throughout the year, the agencies issued case decisions casually casting aside decades of precedent and engaged in aggressive – and unconstitutional – administrative rulemaking in pursuit of this agenda.
We submit this Year in Review to summarize the most noteworthy developments in 2016 – as we emerge from a wildly unusual political year, and head into a new year potentially bringing even more mystery with it. Additional information on these topics and more is available at our Labor Relations Today blog (laborrelationstoday.com), where we will continue to chronicle and alert readers to significant changes in the law as they unfold in 2017 and beyond.
We hope you find it a helpful resource as we head into what will undoubtedly be another active year in labor-management relations.
