Decertification of Representatives
Document Number: 2019-00406
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-01-31
Agency: National Mediation Board, Agencies and Commissions
The National Mediation Board (NMB or Board) is proposing to amend its regulations to provide a straightforward procedure for the decertification of representatives. The Board believes this change is necessary to fulfill the statutory mission of the Railway Labor Act, protecting employees' right to select their representative. This change will ensure that each employee has a say in their representative and eliminate unnecessary hurdles for employees who no longer wish to be represented.
