In a move that will surely disappoint unions, the National Labor Relations Board has announced that it is suspending its request for briefs on whether unions should be legally allowed to charge non-union members grievance fees in Right-to-Work states.
Although the issue had become highly charged, politically, the suspension of the request for briefs does not appear to be due to politics.
Rather, the underlying case (which allowed the NLRB to open the issue up) appears to have been settled.
via the NLRB:
The National Labor Relations Board announced today that the Agency would suspend an invitation for briefs due to a motion filed with the Board in United Steel, Paper and Forestry Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, Local 1192 (Buckeye Florida) (12-CB-109654). The General Counsel and the Respondent filed a joint motion withdrawing exceptions to the decision of the administrative law judge.
The deadline for filing briefs was July 15, 2015 with responsive briefs due on or before July 29, 2015.
