The National Labor Relations Board decided to postpone the effective date of itsearlier requirement that employers post a comprehensive summary of employees’ rights to organize.
The posting requirement has created a firestorm among employers. It is designed to overcome the anti-union environment. Some employees believe that they have no right to talk among themselves about the conditions of the workplace, and that some workplaces are non-union, and they have no right to try to change it.
The first postponement required the poster to be on employer memo boards by January 31.
As of now, the poster must be used by April 30, 2012. The rule is pending a court challenge to the requirement, so further postponements or even a withdrawal of the requirement could occur.
