On December 12, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced that it is adopting amendments to its rules and regulations for the conduct of representation elections. These elections are known as “Quickie Elections” or “Ambush Elections,” and are designed to expedite union elections – effectively giving Employers less time to respond to an organizing campaign.
