Take Action Against Rogue NLRB

Put on Your Thinking Caps

In compliance with Executive Order 13563, the DOL has published its preliminary plan for A Simpler Smarter Regulatory System. (Hope springs eternal.)

So far, it looks like the only regulatory “streamlining” on tap over at the OLM would be cutting the LM-30 disclosure (Labor Organization Officer and Employee Report) from nine pages down to two with union stewards no longer required to report because, you know, unions are so buried in regulatory paperwork!

And the DOL is requesting your feedback! So if you have any suggestions on DOL, OSHA, EBSA, or OLM reporting requirements or regulations (that you could share in polite company) speak up here.
