On December 14, 2017, the National Labor Relations Board published a Request for Information in the Federal Register, seeking public comment on these general questions regarding the December 2014 overhaul of its representation election procedures:

  1. Should the 2014 Election Rule be retained without change?
  2. Should the 2014 Election Rule be retained with modifications? If so, what should be modified?
  3. Should the 2014 Election Rule be rescinded? If so, should the Board revert to the Representation Election Regulations that were in effect prior to the 2014 Election Rule’s adoption, or should the Board make changes to the prior Representation Election Regulations? If the Board should make changes to the prior Representation Election Regulations, what should be changed?

While comments were initially due February 12, 2018, the Board has extended the time for submission of feedback to March 19, 2018.
