NLRB Reverses Rule on Challenges

Change will make it easier for unions to organize smaller units at healthcare facilities.

The National Labor Relations Board overturned a Bush-era ruling, making it easier to organize unions, and backed efforts by organizers to form smaller units within the health-care industry, actions sought by unions.

The rulings issued today, three days after President Barack Obama’s labor-board chairman ended her tenure, are opposed by business groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.
