Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) today issued the following statement today in support of the National Labor Relation Board’s (NLRB) final rule to update and streamline union election procedures:

“I am pleased the NLRB took this necessary step to give workers a fairer opportunity to decide on union representation and modernize union elections,” said Rep. Mark Pocan. “The current process allows employers to threaten and intimidate workers seeking to organize in the workplace. This new rule ensures workers have the opportunity to have fair and timely elections by reducing procedural delays to scheduling union elections and streamlining the appeal process.”
