Yes, the NLRB did voluntarily dismiss its appeal in Chamber of Commerce v. NLRB, the case in which the District Court found that the Board’s expedited representation petition rules were invalid. But do not get too excited, for as previously posted, the Board has already established that its primary agenda item for the upcoming year are these very rules. So all we are seeing quite frankly is a “do-over” by the Board. Hence the legal battle will continue over the Board’s efforts to change the rules that have been in place since the inception of the Agency.
