The National Grocers Association (N.G.A.) has issued the following statement by Peter J. Larkin, president and CEO, following the issuance of an injunction by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit blocking the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from requiring businesses to comply with the board’s employer posting requirement that was set to go into effect April 30.
“N.G.A. applauds today’s decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to block the NLRB’s employer posting rule while the court has the opportunity to hear arguments on the appeal in September,” Larkin said. “This decision comes on the heels of another decision last Friday by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that ruled the NLRB overstepped its authority in promulgating the rule. These court rulings are a win for businesses and employees alike.
“N.G.A. is proud to be a leading member of the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW) that was party to the appeal in the D.C. case,” he added. “These rulings highlight the need to curtail the regulatory excess by the NLRB and is even more reason for the Senate and the House to stop the NLRB’s actions through the Congressional Review Act by passing S.J. Res 36 and H.J. Res 103.”
