On February 4th, the Committee of Practice and Procedure Under the NLRA submitted a letter to the National Labor Relations Board. As you can infer from the name of the committee, the letter posed many questions that had to do with NLRB processes – concerning things like the NexGen online filing system, how often information is subpoenaed, current time-frames for case decisions, etc. The answers to all of these questions and more can be found in the document here.
One of the bits of information we here at LRI found most interesting is the NLRB success rate. In Fiscal Year 2015, there were 20,199 unfair labor practice charges filed. Of those that went to litigation, the NLRB won 88%.
Bottom line, if the NLRB decides to go after you in court you’re dead.
