The state chamber of commerce lawsuit against the National Labor Relations Board has gotten the results it wants, albeit temporarily. The NLRB has agreed to delay enforcement of a rule to require employers to post a notice informing their employees of their union rights.
In September, the South Carolina Chamber and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce jointly sued in federal court in Charleston, challenging the authority of the board. The chambers want to see a balance of right-to-work information allowed and disagrees with union information being enforced. A similar lawsuit was filed by the National Right to Work Committee and the National Association of Manufacturers in federal court in the District of Columbia.
The NLRB agreed to postpone the date of the rule goes into effect until January 31, 2012.
The chamber says that in that time, it will continue to challenge the posting rule.
