NLRB Suspends All Elections
Volume: 19 | Issue: 8
March 20, 2020
The National Labor Relations Board
(NLRB or Board) announced yesterday that all representation elections, including mail ballot elections, are suspended for the next two weeks effective immediately, through and including April 3, 2020. The NLRB states:
“The Board deems this action necessary to ensure the health and safety of our employees, as well as those members of the public who are involved in the election process. Moreover, given the closure of several Regional Offices and limited operations and significant telework at others, the Board does not believe that it is possible to effectively conduct elections at this time.
The Board will continue to monitor this evolving situation and determine whether additional extension of this suspension may be necessary.”
