Federal Judge Refuses to Block NLRA Poster Requirement; April 30th Deadline Stands

Following the ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson on March 2nd that the National Labor Relations Board has the authority to require businesses to display the new NLRA poster, an appeal was immediately filed by the plaintiffs (March 5th), led by the National Association of Manufacturers.  

Included with the appeal was a request for an injunction to block the poster requirement pending a decision on the appeal.   Two days later – on March 7th – the federal District Court (for D.C.) denied the request for an injunction, and the April 30th posting deadline still stands.  

Although the injunction was denied, the appeal filed by the plaintiffs is still in effect, as well as a similar lawsuit brought by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce against the NLRB in U.S. District Court in South Carolina.   The U.S. Chamber is currently awaiting a decision in that case.
