The Board has once again extended the time for filing responses to its December 14, 2017 Request for Information Regarding Representation Election Regulations. The original submission deadline of February 12, 2017, had previously been extended to March 19, 2018. The Board has now extended that deadline to April 18, 2018.
The Board is seeking feedback to three questions regarding the 2014 Election Rule, which modified the Board’s representation-election procedures located at 29 CFR parts 101 and 102:
1. Should the 2014 Election Rule be retained without change?
2. Should the 2014 Election Rule be retained with modifications? I14f 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 Should the 2014 Election Rule be rescinded?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?
This Request for Information was approved in December 2017 by former Board Chairman Philip A. Miscimarra and Members Marvin E. Kaplan and William J. Emanuel, while Members Mark Gaston Pearce and Lauren McFerran dissented.
