On February 22nd, the National Labor Relations Board General Counsel release memo GC 19-04, titled “Unions’ Duty to Properly Notify Employees of Their General Motors/Beck Rights and to Accept Dues Checkoff Revocations after Contract Expiration.”

The memo outlines the General Counsel’s view that many common restrictions on the exercise of Beck rights are invalid and he is asking Regions to issue complaints where unions try to enforce window periods prior to the expiration of a contract or fail to inform members of their Beck rights or percentage of dues paid by objectors.
