Monday and Tuesday next week, the National Labor Relations Board will hold its public hearings on its proposed rulemaking to shorten the time between the filing of representation petitions and the resulting elections. Earlier, the Board announced the line-up of speakers selected to speak during the two day hearings. The impressive list of speakers includes numerous former Board members, prominent labor attorneys, union officials and employer representatives. The two Tuesday sessions conclude with remarks by Professors Dorian Warren and Kate Bronfenbrenner, respectively — recent publishers of a study widely cited in support of the Board’s efforts here.
The hearing will be webcast in its entirety at the Board’s website.
