NLRB Delays Implementation of Election Rule Revisions Due to COVID-19

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has announced that it is delaying the effective date of recent revisions it made to its union election rules that were finalized on April 1, 2020. The new revisions addressed the NLRB's blocking charge policy, the voluntary recognition bar, and special rules regarding union recognition in the construction industry. The Board had scheduled the revisions to go into effect on June 1, 2020.

According to the NLRB's notice, the revisions will now go into effect on July 31, 2020.
