May be easy.
For non union workers to unionize so if I ran a non union business -- -- this ruling mean if the union wants to get.
Critter shop fees to form an -- -- -- he joins us now live from DC.
Beta which I just wanted to spell it out for -- what does this ruling mean our runner let's suppose -- -- a nonunion shop.
The union wants to get in now there's this new rule about the union getting it was it me.
While Stewart what essentially -- trying to do they're trying to cut in half maybe from 38 days to nineteen days.
That that the time for a board election.
The union may have had months to talk to employees to convince -- -- -- election petition but the employable have a matter of any could be far shorter than that.
In order to express the employers' views what they're trying to do is limit the employers' participation in the union election.
So that the predominant story that the employees will hear will be the union story.
Rule that they passed very recently is still in place.
What I just -- of awoke force could become unionized.
But I used the example of a department store whether jewelry count -- could be unionized and everybody else is not that's a wedge rule -- that's still in place.
-- you're absolutely correct that rule is still in place and Stuart it's important to point out.
That this in my view is not a board -- yesterday this is a rule announced by the two Democrats the Republican member of the board what he'd been able to vote.
He didn't have the time I suspect even to read the 208 paged document which they issued.
They pushed this out in order to get it out before Craig Becker's term ends on December 31.
For those reasons I don't think -- ever have the force of law.
And really yesterday and how can you guess how can you turn it I mean it is two to one that was the vote on this particular rule.
How do you -- matches due to go into effect on April -- hobbling of yet it was not to the one Brian -- -- in fact although they purport that in the air 208 page document.
Brian Hayes never voted on it.
But you know the way the board deliberate is that the majority comes out with their decision of their rule and then the person who thinks they're going to be in -- -- concurrent.
Will review it and considerate and decide what to do.
He wasn't given the opportunity -- to do that.
For these reasons I don't think it's gonna have the force of law but it would be a huge union victory would it not.
It would be a huge union victory in a sense.
I think in the long run it's gonna undermine organized labor and I'm in favor of organized labor I think organized labor.
Plays an important role in -- in our free enterprise system.
What this kind of.
If you will -- hooliganism.
On the board will not and -- -- organized labor's long term interest.
