NLRA, NLRB: Anticipated increased activity and requirements by the Board.

Anticipate a requirement by the National Labor Relations Board that employers post a notice about rights of employees, unionized or not, to discuss working conditions, pay, benefits unionization, safety, etc. These are not new rights, but apparently the Board has decided those rights need to be publicized in order to be known and meaningful. The Board may even require that the notice be read aloud to employees. Additionally, steps to ease unionization and other such matters are also anticipated to be in the works.  Check further on the Employment Law Information Network at http://www.elinfonet.com/ and other Internet sources.
