    Default NLRB moves to roll back rule giving workers' contact information to unions

    I have a problem with this. These people that are crying privacy issues and freedom of speech will be the first ones that want the union to protect them if they organize.

    The National Labor Relations Board, the main federal labor law enforcement agency, moved Tuesday to roll back a rule that forced employers to give the contact information for their workers to labor unions regardless of whether the workers consented.

    The five-member board said it would reopen the rule to public comment, the first step in officially rewriting it.

    Under current law, when a union petitions to represent a workplace, the employer must give the union a list of all prospective voters — that is, workers — in that election. In 2014, the board, which had a Democratic majority, expanded the requirement from a list of names and addresses to also include "personal phone numbers and email addresses." The workers had no say. The rule also limited employers' ability to raise objections during the election process and shortened the time period from when elections are scheduled to when they are held.

    The changes, widely dubbed the "speedy election rule," were significant because they were widely believed to aid unions in their efforts to organize workers. The board said the policy was needed to "maximize the likelihood that all the voters will be exposed to the arguments for, as well as against, union representation." Labor groups cheered the changes, saying they limited union-busting tactics by employers, while businesses groups came up with their own term for it: the "ambush election" rule.

    On Tuesday, the board, which now has a Republican majority, said it it would solicit comments on whether the rule should be retained or rescinded. The announcement did not explain why the board was reopening the rule to comment. Current board Chairman Philip Miscimarra, however, dissented on the rule when it was adopted, saying that it "fails to provide adequate protection of employee rights of free choice and privacy and of all employees' and parties' rights of free speech and procedural due process."

    Another of the "Obama did nothing for organized labor" rule is on the chopping block. The warnings were given on these boards as to what was at stake.
