Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- The National Labor Relations Board proposed scaling back its plans for speedier union elections after business groups said the plan would hurt employers.
NLRB Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce, a Democrat, today proposed that the board, which runs union elections and resolves disputes between labor and management, act tomorrow on a portion of the proposal made in June.
Business groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce had said the June NLRB proposal for faster elections would give employers less time to make their case with workers.
